Second annual Night of Hope a success

Buoyed by a crowd of about 150 students - more than twice last year's turnout, UConn coach Geno Auriemma was moved by the impact the College Initiative offshoot of Geno's Cancer Team.

"In such a short amount of time, Andrew (Sullivan, the executive director of Geno's Cancer Team's Collegiate Initiative) and his committee has done such a great job. They work at it."

The highlight of the evening unquestionably came when Auriemma summoned The Chordials, one of the two all-female student a capella groups to perform, back on stage so he could perform with them. Naturally, it brought the house down and nobody laughed any harder than Auriemma's players seated in the back of the room as Auriemma performed Bonnie Raitt's "I Can't Make You Love Me."
