The UConn chants are growing louder as Husky Pride permeates the state.

The Huskies are coming off two big wins in the Final Four over the weekend and both the men's and women's teams are heading to the NCAA Championship games.

The men beat top-seeded Florida Saturday night, 65-53, and the women followed suit Sunday with a decisive 75-56 win over Stanford. 

The undefeated women Huskies will be going up against another team that has not lost this year, Notre Dame — and that makes this the first time that two undefeated women's teams are competing for the national championship, CBS reports.

The men's championship game pits 7-seed UConn against 8-seed Kentucky. Tip off for the men's game is scheduled for 9:10 p.m. on April 7. It will be broadcast on CBS.

Top-ranked UConn women will take on 2-seed Notre Dame at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, April 8, according to the NCAA website.

"I think it's awesome," senior guard Bria Hartley told CBS. "Our men are excited for us, and we're doing the same for them. All the fans in Connecticut are really proud right now. Both teams have worked hard this year. Now the time has come, and we want to make sure we finish on a good note."

Mamma Mia, I'd like to purchase health insurance for my family, but for some reason Obamacare won't let me, I have to wait 7 months to get coverage . Please explains to us " right wingers" why we can't anymore?

"but for some reason Obamacare won't let me" Oh really? 7,000,000 + had no problem. What's your problem?

To mean 7million drops in a cart, 20% haven't paid. We still have 46 million + uninsured and cbo states 30 million for as long as the eye can see, but that doesn't matter. What matters is as a direct result of the aca law, you can't purchase health insurance until the next enrollment period

Some people just can't follow instructions, like the gun goons who didn't register.

Save your breath Harry. Clueless liberals don't get it. Especially in this state.
