Two familiar foes square off: Geno Auriemma's UConn Huskies and Pat Summitt's Tennessee Lady Vols for the women's title. Is it possible that the University of Connecticut will have the honorable and enviable reputation as the best college basketball school in the nation? Georgia Tech and Tennessee look to make them second-best. Stay tuned tomorrow, and if all goes well, Tuesday...

06-04-04, 05:33
The Connecticut Huskies are the 2004 NCAA Division I Men's Basketball Champions!

Georgia Tech 73
Connecticut 82

Now, will the Connecticut Lady Huskies make the school from Storrs, Connecticut the college basketball capital of the world? Stay tuned tomorrow...

Dream Time
06-04-04, 06:34

I watched the game

the Huskies never trailed
in the second half with about 10 mins left
the Huskies once pulled the lead to 25 points

Huskies just controlled the pace of the game,
running fast offense

Emeka Okafor
24 points
15 rebounds
2 blocks
all three categories tops in tonights game

Okafor will possibly be the No.1 draft pick in the upcoming NBA draft

my favourite team Orlando Magic wants him
go get him!! :cool:

07-04-04, 04:39
National Championship

Connecticut 70
Tennessee 61

And it is in this post that the Madness has ended, with the Huskies ruling college hoops.

(250 posts...halfway towards the next level...)

Connecticut becomes the FIRST school in the history of NCAA,
to win BOTH of men and women basketball championship in the SAME YEAR
