UConn defeated UCF 66-53, making Saturday a special Senior Day in Storrs, Conn., as the Huskies took home their seventh AAC regular-season title.
After the game, seniors Molly Bent, Kyla Irvin, and Crystal Dangerfield spoke about their UConn careers, while head coach Geno Auriemma discussed the privilege of coaching them.
"Being a little kid and dreaming of being here, dreaming of playing on this floor, it's meant everything," said Dangerfield. "I said it at the end of the game to our fans, that this has been home for four years and I'll take this with me wherever I go next."
"Parents of some of the kids were thanking me for letting their kids be part of this experience, and I'm thanking them for giving us four years of their kids," said Auriemma. "So, it's just a time to look back, and that's what I do during these times, look back to see where they were and where they are now."
