Governor Proclaims ‘Husky Weekend’ as UConn Gets to Final Four

The UConn women are playing in the Final Four this weekend and the governor has proclaimed this weekend “Husky Weekend.” 

This is UConn’s 12th straight trip to the national semifinals and 20th Final Four overall. 

Gov. Ned Lamont has proclaimed Friday, April 5, through Sunday, April 7, as “Husky Weekend” in the State of Connecticut in recognition of the UConn women’s basketball team. He is urging all Connecticut residents to show their Husky pride this weekend by wearing UConn Huskies gear, displaying UConn flags and signs, and sporting blue and white. 

“The UConn women have once again given it their all and inspired a generation of fans with their dedication, determination, and strength,” Lamont said in a statement. “Nobody can match the power of these players. We want each of them to know that they have the support of the entire State of Connecticut and we will be cheering them on this weekend.” 

UConn is scheduled to play the Notre Dame Fighting Irish in the Final Four tournament Friday night.
