Connecticut guard Kemba Walker looks up at the school's honor board as his number 15 is listed with past athletic greats while standing with head coach Jim Calhoun during a pep rally the University of Connecticut in Storrs, Conn., Tuesday, April 5, 2011. Connecticut beat Butler for the national championship in the NCAA men's Final Four basketball tournament on Monday, April 4 in Houston.

Plans are in the works for a parade to honor the national champion Connecticut men's basketball team.

Organizers say Gov. Dannel P. Malloy's office is working with the school to find a date and time that would work for everybody.

Laura Soll, a spokeswoman for the organizers, said the route likely will be similar to UConn victory parades in years past, starting and ending at the state Capitol.

UConn, which was picked to finish 10th in the Big East in the preseason, completed a remarkable 11-0 run through the postseason on Monday with a 53-41 win over Butler in the national championship game.
