For the 11th time in his career, Norristown’s Geno Auriemma looks to secure another NCAA Tournament Championship title. The UConn Huskies defeated Oregon State on Saturday to take on Syracuse Tuesday in Indianapolis. UConn is undefeated in title games under Auriemma (10-0).

Geno Auriemma immigrated to Norristown from our sister city, Montella, Italy, at age 7. He is a graduate of Bishop Kenrick High School on Johnson Highway.

Auriemma started his coaching career at St. Joseph’s as an assistant coach and became a Head Coach in 1985 at University of Connecticut. Since coaching, he has gone on to become the fastest head coach to reach 800 and 900 wins ever. For a complete biography of Auriemma, head over to UConnHuskies.com.

Support Norristown’s own this Tuesday and watch history be made! The game airs at 8:30pm on ESPN.
