The Huskies have made a lot of people happy on and off the court over the years. They have won seven national championships, made 13 Final Four appearances and have a winning percentage of .862 (810-129) in 17-plus season under coach Geno Auriemma.
But UConn has also spent a great deal of time in the community aiding those who are less fortunate. Another such instance occurred Saturday when the Huskies visited The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp in Ashford. It is a location where kids with serious illness can simply be kids.
“At the Hole in the Wall, we first got hats,’’ UConn freshman Breanna Stewart said. “Then we signed autographs. Then we went and hung out with the kids and took pictures. And then you could like decorate frames or decorate pictures and stuff like that. But it was a really nice experience. Hopefully, we’ll go back next year.
“It was very rewarding. Just to see, obviously, the kids are excited just to be there. And just to see them show their excitement towards us. That’s what makes you smile I guess is because they’re excited so then we’re excited. And then we all have a good time.’’
