The XL Center -- formerly the "Hartford Civic Center" -- is in the middle of downtown Hartford. The columns in the space outside the arena are wrapped in sports photos, including this photo of Diana Taurasi. Taurasi led the UConn women's basketball team to three consecutive national championships (2002 - 2004). When the coach was asked why he thought Connecticut would win, he answered "We have Diana and they don't."
