We got some great responses from alums and fans to our Question of the Issue in December, “What’s your favorite UConn sports moment?”
Anne Rehm Bristol, Conn.
It was Rebecca Lobo’s circle run around the court just after winning the 1995 NCAA championship. It was different than the normal huddle hug and I felt like she then included the fans.
Sarah Melchior ’10 (CLAS) Williamsburg, Va.
I waited in line at 5 a.m. for basketball tickets one year. I also developed a lasting hatred of Syracuse basketball when they camped out outside of Gampel for days before a game.
Peter Celella ’79 (ENG) West Hartford, Conn.
It was when the men beat Gonzaga to make the Final Four for the first time.
Alfred Garcia ’14 (BUS) Delhi, N.Y.
I was on campus when UConn basketball won both NCAA titles in 2014. Both nights my friends and I rushed over to the intersection of Fairfield Way and Hillside Road where we met hundreds of students celebrating the victories. We came up short for the double title my freshman year, so seeing it happen senior year was something I’ll always remember.
