Mike Tyson congratulated the wrong team on women’s national title

Wednesday April 6th, 2016

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.
