(CBS Connecticut) — As honors continue here in the state for the University of Connecticut Men’s and Women’s basketball teams, their dual National Championships were honored on the floor of the U-S Senate,  where both Senators Richard Blumenthal and Chris Murphy praised the achievement.

Senator Murphy told his fellow senators that UConn basketball has a winning tradition —  but that it is more than numbers of championships.  Indiana Senator Dan Coats congratulated Connecticut in his remarks following Murphy.  The UConn women’s team defeated Notre Dame,  in South Bend, Indiana.
