Huskies used last year as motivation
SAN ANTONIO -- Connecticut had a plan to win the 2004 national title.
And it began in this building, here in the Alamodome, on March 28, 2003 when the Huskies lost to Texas in the Sweet 16.
"I told them we'll be back," Connecticut coach Jim Calhoun said. "I told them that they're going to be good enough. I said we'd get them some help. I said to stick with us and work hard and great things would happen."
His players didn't ignore the message.
