UConn Huskies rally and parade on FOX 61 on Sunday
HARTFORD – A UConn women’s basketball victory parade and rally will be held Sunday in Hartford and FOX 61 will be covering the excitement live!
Governor Dannel P. Malloy announced that the State of Connecticut, City of Hartford, and the Hartford Business Improvement District will host a victory parade and rally celebration on Sunday in downtown Hartford to congratulate the UConn Women’s Basketball team for winning the 2016 NCAA National Championship.
The parade will kick off at 1 p.m. at the State Capitol building and will be followed by a victory rally outside of the XL Center at approximately 1:30 p.m.
The parade route will begin at the State Capitol building on the corner of Trinity Street and Elm Street. It proceeds north on Trinity Street through the Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Arch, turning right (east) onto Jewell Street, then left (north) onto Trumbull Street, and ending at the intersection of Asylum Street and Trumbull Street, just steps away from where the rally will be held in front of the main entrance of the XL Center.
“The Huskies have dominated women’s basketball this entire season and this eleventh national title is simply remarkable,” Malloy said in a statement. “Coach Geno Auriemma and the entire UConn women’s basketball team have once again made our state extraordinarily proud. On Sunday, we plan to celebrate their success by honoring them with another event to remember.”
The UConn women won their fourth consecutive national title on Tuesday, completing an undefeated season with an 82-51 rout of Syracuse. They also posted their 75th straight win.
