STORRS, Conn. — Stefanie Dolson has helped UConn to a 133-11 record and a national championship in her four years on the team. But she’s also brought to the program something coach Geno Auriemma believes has been just as important — joy.
The Huskies’ 6-foot-5 center has starred in a YouTube video dressed as a Dalmatian, jumped out of a perfectly good airplane and put “bunny ears” behind the president during a White House photo opportunity.
On Saturday, before UConn’s final regular-season home game against Rutgers, Dolson and Bria Hartley will have their names added to the “Huskies of Honor” wall at Gampel Pavilion.
UConn hopes to win a ninth national championship and another White House visit. President Barack Obama promised that if she comes back, he’ll compete with her in a dance-off.
