After a hard-fought season, the University of Connecticut men’s basketball team is now the 2014 national champion.
In his first tournament berth, 2nd year head coach (and former baller himself) Kevin Ollie pushed his young team to the epitome of the college basketball world. The Huskies sank a young, athletic Kentucky squad that had begun to look unbeatable as the tournament went along. However, UConn kept the Kentucky off the boards, their bigs out of the paint, and the shooters cold. Last night’s win gave UConn their 4th national championship.
Congratulations to UConn!! And good luck to their women as they compete for their own national championship this evening.
