UConn Huskies Celebrate Victory in Hartford

A victory parade and rally to congratulate the UConn Women’s Basketball Team for winning the 2013 NCAA Women’s Basketball National Championship will be held in Hartford Sunday afternoon.


While the NCAA Tournament has ended, the celebration in Connecticut has not. 

Geno Auriemma and the UConn Huskies, accompanied by Governor Dannel Malloy and Lieutenant Governor Nancy Wyman, will participate in a victory parade that will start at the State Capitol building in Hartford at 4 p.m. Sunday, according to a news release from the Office of Governor Dannel Malloy.

The parade, which is hosted by the Hartford Business Improvement District, will be followed by a rally on the steps of the Capitol building.

“The UConn Women have once again focused the spotlight of college basketball on Connecticut by bringing home another national championship and proving to the nation why the road to the Final Four always runs through Connecticut,” Governor Malloy stated in the news release. “I’m looking forward to joining thousands of Husky fans in Hartford on Sunday to let the team and Coach Auriemma know how proud we are of their success this season." 

The parade will commence at the Capitol and travel northbound on Trinity Street. The victory celebration will then take a right on Jewell Street, bear right at Gold Street and halfway around Pulaski Circle onto Hudson Street. The parade will then make a right onto Capitol Avenue before returning to the State Capitol, where the rally will be held, according to the news release.
