UConn Huskies win national championship

Daniels and Napier

In a game featuring the highest combined seeds in the history of the national championship game, the Connecticut Huskies defeated the Kentucky Wildcats 60-54 at AT&T Stadium in North Texas to win the school’s fourth NCAA title. All of those championships have come since 1999, the third-fastest a team has won four titles in NCAA history. It is UConn’s second title in four seasons and the first for 41-year-old head coach Kevin Ollie, who is in just his second season leading his alma mater and only four years removed from a 13-year career as an NBA player.
