UConn celebrates again as women's team wins title

STORRS, Conn. (AP) -- It was deja vu for Husky fans
Students stormed the court at Gampel Pavilion for a second consecutive night as the Husky's women basketball team joined the men as national champions.
About 7,500 fans came to the UConn arena Tuesday evening for a rally to welcome home Husky men after their win over Kentucky on Monday. About 5,000, including several members of the men's team, stayed in the arena and watched on large movie screens as the women blew out Notre Dame.
After the final buzzer, they poured out of the arena and began a second night of partying.
It's the second dual championship for UConn, which also won the men's and women's titles in 2004. No other Division I school has accomplished that.
