Only two times in the history of college basketball has one school's men's and women's teams won the national championship in the same year. Both times it was the University of Connecticut, first in 2004 and now in 2014. What was once an impossible dream is now an incontrovertible fact: since the turn of the century UCONN is the greatest basketball program in the country. The men got it started on Monday, riding All-American point guard Shabazz Napier to a 60-54 victory over Kentucky and their much heralded freshman class. It was the first title for second year coach Kevin Ollie, and the fourth overall for the men's team since 1999, more than any other school in that time period.
The women got their share on Tuesday, as they defeated a previously unbeaten Notre Dame team 79-58 behind player of the year Breanna Stewart. It was their second straight title, and the ninth overall for the school and coach Geno Auriemma. The nine titles set the all time record for most championships by a women's team, capping off an historic weekend for the Husky Nation. Congratulations to all the players and coaches, you earned it!
