Crosby Common residents cheer on UCONN HuskiesShelton, CT (Wednesday, March 9, 2016) - Residents of Crosby Commons Independent and Assisted Living Community in Shelton brought their energy and enthusiasm to the Mohegan Sun Arena on Saturday, March 5 th for the American Athletic Conference Quarterfinals.

The group took the trip to cheer on the UConn Lady Huskies and enjoyed two great basketball games at the tournament, watching Tulane defeat Memphis 70-64 and UConn defeat East Carolina, 92-51. The trip was organized by Activities Director, Kelly Coppola and coordinated with the help of Crosby driver, Angelo Constantini and volunteer, Karly Coppola. “It was a great trip!” shared Crosby resident, John Balogh. “I graduated from UConn in 1953, so I’m a big fan. I try to watch all the games.” When asked his predictions on the Lady Huskies for the end of the season, John was very optimistic, “They’re going to win the National Championship.”
