U.S. Rep. John Larson

Congressman John Larson: "The whole UConn nation, New England and the sporting world, our hearts ache because we're losing our champion, our hero, the guy who gave tough love but led with conviction.

It's a tough day for us but I am happy for Jim and Pat whose impact as humanitarians alone showed us he was a leader in a ways that they didn't have to be. There is simply no replacing Jim Calhoun. Connecticut will go on, in large part because of his legacy; Jim Calhoun is basketball for Connecticut.
