UConn women’s basketball fans continue Final Four tradition in Minneapolis

MINNEAPOLIS — Bonnie Emery has been to 23 Final Fours.

Instead of stamping a passport for each city, she’s documented each Final Four by adding a pin to a custom handmade vest that features an assortment of blue and white UConn logos.

The Bristol native is in Minneapolis this weekend with her sisters, Diane Bancroft and Jan Hayton, to watch UConn take part in its 14th straight trip to the national semifinals. The No. 2-seeded Huskies take on No. 1 Stanford at Target Center at 9:30 p.m. (ESPN) Friday.

For longtime UConn fans such as Emery, attending the Final Four in person is as normal as attending any regular season home game.
