The President meets the Connecticut Lady Huskies
A perfect season is rare in sports. It takes talent, hours and hours of hard work, and a commitment to excellence. The 2009 Huskies were that team. And they had a magical year to say the least...39-0. As National Player of the year Maya Moore said before her visit to the White House, "Little did we know that we would be apart of history ourselves a few months later! Looking back now on our season I realize how blessed we were to have experienced such a once in a lifetime college year." After meeting the team and the coaches at the White House, it was obvious why the Huskies were perfect this past season. They are an amazing group of young women determined to work hard, have some fun, and accomplish great things. As you can see in the video, this team strives for success on and off the court. Geno's Cancer Team is one of those real successes. The service the team does year in and year out in Connecticut helps communities and neighborhoods across the state. The Huskies value service and understand the power of giving.
