Fresh off a perfect 40-0 season and a record ninth NCAA Women's Basketball Championship, Geno Auriemma can now add another more thing to his trophy case. The Hall of Fame University of Connecticut coach received a pair of Mache-customized Nike Kobe 9 Elites that pay tribute to the UCONN Huskies. “These will never be worn," Geno said. "I need to get a glass case for these.” Coach Auriemma always looks out for his players, but it looks like he'll be keeping these to himself: "I'm gonna have to hide these or my players will come in and steal them for practice."

Nike also commissioned a mural for the new UCONN Basketball Champions Center practice facility to honor the coach and the univerisity's basketball program. Click through to see detailed notes from the artist, Erik Siador.
