UConn championship parade set for Hartford
A parade to honor the national champion Connecticut men's basketball team has been scheduled for Sunday, April 17.
Gov. Dannel P. Malloy says the Hartford Business Improvement District will host the victory parade and rally in Connecticut's capital city.
The route of the parade will be similar to UConn victory parades in years past, starting and ending at the state Capitol. The governor's office says organizers are relying on private money to pay for the parade and rally.
UConn, which was picked to finish 10th in the Big East in the preseason, completed a remarkable 11-0 run through the postseason on Monday with a 53-41 win over Butler in the national championship game.
