Huskies Hoist Trophy

No. 4 Connecticut defeated No. 5 San Diego State yesterday, 76-59, in the men's college basketball championship. It marks the program's first title under fifth-year head coach Dan Hurley and the program's fifth championship since 1999. The Huskies improved to a perfect 5-0 in title game appearances, and have tied Duke for the most championships since 1985.

The victory caps a dominant tournament run for Connecticut, who won ever game by double digits, including a 23-point win over No. 8 Arkansas and a 28-point win over No. 3 Gonzaga. Forward Adama Sanogo, who notched 17 points and 10 rebounds, was named Most Outstanding Player. The win also marked the first time in the past six seasons a No. 1 seed did not win the championship.
