NEW ORLEANS - The University of Connecticut women's basketball team spent its first full day in New Orleans and kept busy in the Big Easy with a variety of activities.
The Huskies started the day off with a practice at Tulane University before head coach Geno Auriemma and seven players traveled to New Orleans Arena to partake in interviews and video shoots with ESPN, NCAA.com and the Dial Global/NCAA Radio Network.
The team then spent the evening at Mardi Gras World with the other three teams remaining in the NCAA Division I Women's Basketball Championship. All four teams were treated to dinner and were the centerpiece of the NCAA's Salute on Parade presentation.
