UConn senior Niels Giffey suggested the Huskies’ national championship can serve as an example of how four-year players can do something special.
“I hope that’s one of the things that our story, that we wrote, really tells,” he said, “and that people can see and hopefully they can learn a lesson from that.
“That it can really work out if you stay with one program for four years. And you stay with a core group of people and you really get to know each other on and off the court so well. You just create bonds that you will never forget, and you will always have throughout your life.”
