Basketball

Strong alumni, student, and fan support for UConn's men's basketball teams helped the Huskies' women's basketball program attract Geno Auriemma as head coach.

History and coaches

UConn Men's Basketball was once a regional power, winning 18 Yankee Conference championships between 1947 and 1975, when the Yankee Conference dropped support of basketball including 12 by Hugh Greer. In 1979, UConn was one of the seven founding schools of the Big East Conference, which was created to focus on basketball. In the early days of the Big East, UConn struggled behind national powers Georgetown and Syracuse. Prior to the 1986-87 season UConn hired Jim Calhoun to be the program's new head coach, but the Huskies difficulties continued and they finished the season with a record of 9-19, their fifth straight losing season. But in 1988, the team showed significant improvement and gained a berth in the NIT. UConn went on a run in the tournament and defeated Ohio State 72-67 at Madison Square Garden to win the NIT, the school's first national basketball title. The Yankee Conference was a collegiate sports conference in the eastern United States which sponsored competition only in football. ...

The 1990 "Dream Season" would bring UConn basketball to the national stage. Led by Chris Smith, Nadav Henefeld and Tate George, UConn went from unranked in the preseason to winning the Big East Regular Season and Tournament Championships, both for the first time. 1990 also marked the opening of Gampel Pavilion, the program's new on-campus home. In the NCAA Tournament the Huskies garnered a #1 seed in the East Reigon, but trailed Clemson 70-69 with 1 second remaining in the Sweet 16. Scott Burrell's full-court pass found Tate George on the far baseline. George spun, fired, and hit a buzzer-beater that is known in Connecticut simply as "The Shot".
