Latest Huskies of Honor

On Nov. 16, at the Huskies' season opener, UConn will induct the 1994-95 team that went 35-0 into the Huskies of Honor.

It is the first editions since December 2006 when 10 players were brought in as the initial class. This will also be the first time an entire team is honored.

That first title is still the sweetest for coach Geno Auriemma.

“I think that’s the one,” he said. “It was the first time you ever were able to experience something like that. There’s something different about it. The feeling that you get and the reception that team got will be beyond anything that will ever happen.”

Among the honorees are Auriemma and assistants Chris Dailey, Tony Cardoza and Meghan Pattyson, as well as players Rebecca Lobo, current assistant Jamelle Elliott, Jennifer Rizzotti, Nykesha Sales, Kara Wolters, Pam Webber, Kim Better, Jill Gelfenbien, Carla Berube, Sarah Northway, Missy Rose, Brenda Maruis and Kelly Hunt
