Faris, you are absolutely incredible, I'm going to miss you but I hope to see you in the WNBA soon.

    Kathleen (Durham CT): I am a die hard Husky fan and yes I do bleed BLUE. I am so proud of the women and their road to their 8th National Championship. I knew they could do it and I know they did too they just needed to settle down and not focus on their losses. Yes they lost to Notre Dame 3 times but as far as I'm concerned those 3 times don't count. Beating Notre Dame in the Final Four was THE game and I knew the women would beat them. The same goes for with Louisville. Yes they were the "Cinderella" team but Uconn came to play where as Louisville fizzled. They did keep us on our toes but as you can see for the margin of victory UCONN was UNBEATABLE. I can't wait till next season. I see more trophies in the near future :D

    Lisa(Byron, GA): CONGRATULATIONS to the entire team and the coaching staff. I absolutely love everything about UCONN women's basketball and this championship was well deserved. Kelly Faris will be missed, along with Caroline Doty, but they should adjust just fine in the WNBA. Best wishes to Heather Buck too, even though she didn't get much playing time, but I'm sure she feels honored to have been a part of such a wonderful basktetball program. Again, this victory was well deserved!

    Tourigny Family, CT: Congrats Ladies! We have an incoming freshman and are already experiencing Huskymania! Can't wait to see your, no doubt, continued success!

    Loraine (NJ): Heather is an inspiration to me. She always showed a positive attitude despite her limited playing time.

You've shown great character throughout your Huskies' career.

    Nick Visone RH CT: What an amazing NCAA tournament performance!! I think When most people looked at our bracket and saw some of the teams in our path we felt it would be a tough task to get to the Final Four. The way that this team handled the very good teams it played both defensively and offensively was beautiful to see. The contributions of so many players to these wins were tremendous. Truly team wins. Congratulations on a fantastic year and I can't wait to see you play again next season. Heather,Kelly and Caroline- thanks for all the memories and best of luck in the next phase of your lives. It won't always be as much fun as college but I hope you realize your dreams!
