Success twice as nice in Storrs
By Lizzie Haldane
Stefanie Dolson and UConn will take on Maryland in the Sweet 16.
UConn is the only Division I school to win the men’s and women’s basketball national titles in the same season, having earned both championships in 2004. That feat capped a 10-season stretch in which the teams from Storrs won a total of seven national championships -- five for the women and two for the men. In all, the women's team has made 13 Final Four appearances and won seven national championships. The men have gone to four Final Fours and won the championship three times. This season, the women have advanced to the Sweet 16 while the men are sitting out due to a postseason ban.
