To some, it's just another school, another team, but here, it's  #HuskyNation.   

"I hope we win.  I hope we go all the way," said Erika Solazzo, UConn Stamford freshman.

"It's just absolute pandemonium that they're back in it again, both of them.  [The] only team to do that," said freshman Christopher Mizia.

UConn Stamford students say it's been a wild ride.  

"Everybody was just jumping for joy when we get blocks and when we'd get shots and what not, it was great," said Mizia.

"Really high energy.  Everybody's just really excited," said Solazzo.

Both teams won the national tournament 10 years ago.  And they're hoping the Huskies can make history once again.  

"Obviously the last time they were both in it, they won, so I'm hoping they can do it again before any school does it once," said Mizia.

"Those teams need to win and I think they're going to do it.  I know they're going to do it," said Suraj Krishna, a sophomore at UConn Stamford.

With the championship play-offs just around the corner, pride is the name of the game. 

"I love to tell people that I go to UConn and people ask me if they see me wearing a shirt about the basketball and I love to talk about it," said Krishna.

"I hope they win, beat Kentucky.  As long as they play their game and keep on playing the game that they've been playing, UConn's going to win," said Mizia.
