      HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) – Basketball fans lined up four and five
deep at spots Sunday to catch a glimpse of Connecticut's men's
basketball team as it paraded through downtown to celebrate the
program's third national title.
      The Huskies rode on a double-decker bus waving at fans who
celebrated their 53-41 win over Butler on April 4 in Houston. They
were escorted by bands, jugglers, politicians and even dogs from a
local Siberian Husky club.
      The parade wound its way from the Capitol and around Bushnell
Park, before heading down Capitol Avenue for a rally on the north
steps of the statehouse.
