Rings and Things
The Huskies have been feted by President Obama at the White House, thrown first pitches at Yankee Stadium (Kemba Walker) and Fenway Park (Jim Calhoun) and generally basked in the glow of the school's third national title. There are, however, a couple more celebrations of the 2010-11 national championship to go.
On Oct. 6, UConn will host a celebration dinner, hosted by Jay Bilas, at the Connecticut Convention Center, at which the Huskies will receive their championship rings. Tickets are still available for this event and can be done so here. Or fans can call the UConn Athletic Department Foundation at 860-486-3863 or fax 860-486-3521, or email at firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your seat.
Dinner starts at about 7 p.m.; Kemba will be there.
And, of course, UConn's national championship banner will be unveiled at the team's regular-season opener on Friday, Nov. 11 against Columbia at Gampel (7 p.m.).
After that, it's all about 2011-12.
