Champion Huskies set for victory celebration

- Associated Press - Tuesday, April 5, 2011

STORRS, CONN. (AP) - University of Connecticut police say they arrested 23 people celebrating the Huskies' national championship.

The arrests between 8 p.m. Monday and 4 a.m. Tuesday were mostly for vandalism, but others were accused of breach of peace, inciting a riot, criminal trespassing and interfering with a police officer. Of the 23 arrested, 10 are UConn students. No one was held and all will be called to court this month.

Star guard Kemba Walker, coach Jim Calhoun and the rest of the team will be welcomed at a victory rally at Gampel Pavilion.

The Huskies defeated Butler 53-41 Monday night in Houston and are to arrive at Bradley International Airport at about 3:30 p.m. Tuesday.
