Huskies Championship Celebration Set

Fans get ready.  The University of Connecticut says the national championship-winning UConn Huskies will be back in town on Wednesday.

The team won their sixth national championship in St. Louis Tuesday night with a 76-54 win over Louisville.

The team plans to leave St. Louis Wednesday at noon (1 p.m. in Connecticut).  If the flight takes off on time, the Huskies should arrive at Bradley International Airport at 3:15 p.m.

Fans who want to welcome home the team can do so at the airport.  A brief celebration, including comments from head coach Geno Auriemma will take place at the intersection of Route 75 and Firehouse Road.

After the airport celebration, the team will travel to Gampel Pavilion in Storrs for a Championship Pep Rally.

The doors to Gampel Pavilion will open to the public at  3:00 p.m., with the team set to arrive in Storrs at 4:30 p.m. for the Pep Rally.
