HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - Connecticut Gov. Dannel P. Malloy says a parade for the University of Connecticut men’s and women’s national championship basketball teams will be held in Hartford on Sunday.

Malloy announced Wednesday that the parade is set for 4 p.m. and will begin and end at the state Capitol. A victory rally will follow on the north steps of the Capitol. Private donations are paying for the events.

The UConn men beat Kentucky for the national title Monday night, while the women’s team defeated Notre Dame for its record-breaking ninth championship Tuesday night.

UConn is the only school to win both the men’s and women’s Division I basketball championships in the same year. Both teams also won the titles in 2004.

The women’s team is returning to the Storrs campus Wednesday afternoon.
