Championship parade set for April 18

The parade and rally honoring the national championship UConn women's basketball team will be held on April 18 beginning at 3 p.m.

The victory parade will begin and end at the State Capitol and the route will include the Bushnell Park, Main Street and Capitol Avenue areas of Hartford. A celebration rally with the coaches and players will take place on the north steps of the Capitol building immediately following the parade.

Before the start of the parade, the U.S. senior national team, coached by UConn's Geno Auriemma, is expected to play an exhibition scrimmage against the USA Basketball Select Team at 12:30 pm at the XL Center.

UConn just completed its second straight 39-0 season with a 53-47 win over Stanford in the national championship game on Tuesday. It is the Huskies seventh national title including sixth in the last 11 seasons.
