WINDSOR LOCKS -- The UConn Women's Basketball team has returned to Connecticut.

The team was arrived by charter to the TAC Air facility at Bradley. They arrived around 3:50 p.m. From there they took a bus back to campus.

The Huskies fell short to No. 2 Mississippi State in overtime Friday in the NCAA Final Four, 66-64. Gabby Williams led the Huskies in scoring with 21 points. Napheesa Collier finished with 11 points and Katie Lou Samuelson finished with 15. Saniya Chong also added in 10 points for the Huskies.

However several students on campus were spoke about the Huskies potential for next season.

"The transfers that came this year, they'll be able to play," says Karalyn Meineke, a member of the UConn pep band. "The recruiting class that we had come in looks awesome so I'm just really excited for next year."

Other fans say making it to The Final Four is good enough.

"I really think that having 111 wins in a row is awesome considering that they weren't supposed to do as well this year having such a young team," says UConn junior Michaela Pruchnicki.

UConn's record 111-game winning streak came to an end Friday night when the Huskies lost to Mississippi State 66-64 on a last-second shot in overtime. The team finished the season 36-1.
