Mike Tyson congratulated the wrong team on women’s national title
Connecticut won its fourth consecutive women’s basketball title on Tuesday night, defeating Syracuse 82–51 in the championship game and giving the team’s seniors a perfect record in the postseason tournament.
Mike Tyson wanted to congratulate the women on their dominance but he got his schools that begin with a C mixed up and accidentally congratulated the Huskies’ American Conference rivals the University of Cincinnati.
The Bearcats did not have quite as successful a year as UConn, going 8-22 and losing to the eventual champions by 54 and 62 points in their two meetings this season.
