I've been a lifelong UConn Huskies fan (having grown up in Connecticut) and even though I live in Oakland, Calif. I still support the Huskies and follow them closely all season.
With my brother, we've traveled to the NCAA Final Four in 2004, 2009, 2011 and this season to support our team. After the surprising 2011 victory we went to the team's hotel to celebrate with the fans and team. It was a surprise victory and I took photos of the moment on my blog. It felt like after 2011 it would be a long time till UConn would be back here, but 3 years later we found ourselves celebrating once again a national championship at the Dallas Hyatt Regency hotel after UConn's 60-54 victory over Kentucky in the Championship game.
And senior Tyler Olander, who was gracious to let people get a selfie with him.
But it wasn't just players from this year's team in attendance, it included some of the royalty of UConn teams from the past. Richard Hamilton, MVP of the 1999 team...
And Khalid El-Amin sharing a laugh with UConn's No.1 fan Big Red U-C-O-N-N UConn, UConn UCONN!!!
The party went late...
After all, although I'm a photographer I'm a UConn Fan first!
UCONN NO.1 BABY!!!!!
