UConn Wins Men’s NCAA Basketball Championship

April 9, 2024

I think it’s up there in terms of the greatest two-year runs that a program maybe has ever had.

UConn coach Dan Hurley said after the team won the NCAA men’s basketball championship on Monday night. The UConn Huskies beat the Purdue Owls 75-60.

Why It Matters: UConn won last year, meaning last night’s game marks the first back-to-back win of the men’s NCAA championship since the Florida Gators won in 2006 and 2007, and just the second occurrence since Duke won in 1991 and 1992.

Also Worth Noting: The women’s championship game on Sunday set a viewership record.
