Everybody knows that UConn is the first school in NCAA history to have both their men's and women's teams win the season championship the same year, namely 2004. So far, they're the only school to have done this.

By securing the services of Andre Drummond for the 2011-2012 season, UConn is very likely also to be the first school to have both men's and women's #1 incoming freshmen, Drummond and Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis, the consensus #1 high school girls' basketball player last year out of Mater Dei High School in Santa Ana, California. Led by Mosqueda-Lewis, a deadly 3-point shooter with a silky smooth shot release, Mater Dei is the back-to-back girls high school national champion.

I'm not 100% sure of this claim (maybe Duke did it before), but I'll face the woodchipper like a man if I'm wrong.

Drummond is ranked #2 in most 2012 rankings and obviously isn't ranked in 2011 so its hard to know if he would have been #1.

Many on twitter are putting Drummond between 3-5 in this year's class
