    The UConn women's basketball team celebrate their 2017 American Athletic Conference championship.

    Gov. Dannel Malloy is officially recognizing this weekend as "Husky Weekend" across the state.

    This will mark the 10th consecutive time the University of Connecticut women's basketball team has played in the NCAA Final Four Tournament. The team is scheduled to play on Friday night. They face the Mississippi State University Bulldogs.

    Malloy is urging all Connecticut residents to show their "Husky pride" this weekend by wearing UConn gear, displaying UConn flags and signs and sporting the school's colors of blue and white.

    Malloy says the women on the team "have been inspirational, not only to young athletes here in Connecticut, but to millions of people throughout the country."
