STORRS, CT (WFSB) -

University of Connecticut fans in Storrs and Indianapolis were cheering for the lady Huskies at the national championship game on Tuesday, as they won their fourth straight national championship.

UConn sophomore Allie Davis and her friends were practicing their cheers a little early. They were among the thousands of fans on campus cheering on the UConn Women's Basketball Team in the national championship game on Tuesday night.

"People have to start practicing harder to get to their level that will make everyone else better," Davis said. 

The game was held in Indianapolis, but it seems like just about everyone on UConn's campus were watching at a viewing party at Gampel Pavilion. 

"We're the basketball capital of the nation," Davis said. "It's gonna be fun it's gonna be loud."

All the fans seemed confident the Huskies would take down the opposing Syracuse Orange. 

"I predict that we beat Syracuse by 25 or 30 points," Harrison Fregeau said. 

Fregeau is a senior, so the Huskies have been champs every year he's been on campus.

Along with three straight titles, the Huskies have already won 74 consecutive games.

At half time, UConn was leading Syracuse 50-23. UConn continued to lead, and beat Syracuse at the end 82-51.
