The American Athletic Conference may be a name that seems unfamiliar to casual sports fans, but it
is the new name of the former Big East. The conference changed its name after several schools left for other conferences and
new teams were added, leading to an exciting new era of college basketball as powerhouses acquaint themselves with new conference
rivals. And one team that definitely has the attention of the rest of the teams in the AAC is UCONN, a squad that is never

have even won eight different NCAA Tournament titles and have been to the Sweet Sixteen 20 different times, showing that every
year seems to be a good one for the Huskies to take a swing at adding another trophy to their packed trophy case.
Women's Basketball Trivia
Did you know that UCONN didn't make their first NCAA Tournament until 1989?
you can be excused for thinking that UCONN must have always been an absolute powerhouse, that wasn't actually the case. The
Tournament first got rolling in 1982, and even though there were some great seasons in the early 80s for the Huskies as well,
they didn't actually make it to the Big Dance until '89. Of course, the Huskies decided they liked playing in the Tournament
so much that they went back every single year since, marking an unbelievable streak of basketball dominance that few teams
have come close to matching.
