Just a hunch, but don’t be surprised if UConn coach Jim Calhoun throws out a first pitch at Fenway Park sometime this weekend after winning the national championship on Monday night.
Calhoun, who is from Braintree, is a huge Red Sox fan. Maybe he’ll bring some of his players, too. Jamal Coombs-McDaniel (Dorchester), Shabazz Napier (Randolph) and Alex Oriakhi (Lowell) all hail from the Boston area.
Congrats to all the UConn fans out there. It wasn’t a classic final game but the Huskies had an amazing run.
