It wasn't always pretty, but in the end it was perfect. King Kemba (Junior point guard Kemba Walker) led the UCONN men's basketball team to the school's third national championship last night, ending his team's season undefeated in tournament play (early season Hawaii tournament, Big East tournament and the NCAA tournament). While I am disappointed that the women's basketball team couldn't join them in the winner's circle, I am proud that the magnificent Maya Moore won an unprecedented third Wade Trophy and her second Naismith trophy (among countless other awards) this year.
As a lifelong fan of UCONN Huskies basketball, I couldn't be more proud today (like I was then). Read more about the victory here, Coach Calhoun's legacy here, and Kemba's skills here.
