Summer 2011

By Colin McDonough, Associate Sports Editor

One of the best years in school history has come to a close at UConn as summer vacation is upon us.

The football team won the Big East and played in the Fiesta Bowl in the Huskies’ first BCS bowl game. The women’s basketball team made its fourth straight Final Four after winning 90 games in a row. And saving the best for last, the men’s basketball team won the National Championship on April 4, 53-41 over Butler. It capped off Kemba Walker’s career in Storrs and gave Jim Calhoun a third NCAA title.

Now the time of reflection has begun after a great year to be at UConn. But that doesn’t mean The Daily Campus won’t stay up to date with the Huskies. Check this blog, and for stories and updates on the UConn baseball team, as they try to make a return trip to the NCAA tournament. There will also be posts on whether or not Calhoun will return at the helm for UConn in its defense of the national championship, as well as preparation for the football team’s first season with Paul Pasqualoni as head coach.
