Press Release

Hartford, CT – Today, Rep. John B. Larson (CT-01) released the following statement on the passing of former UConn Basketball Couch Dee Rowe:

“Dee Rowe was not only a great basketball coach, but a great ambassador for the University of Connecticut. He was a true class act. I’m proud that East Hartford can claim three UConn Men’s Basketball Team Captains under Dee Rowe: Ron Hrubala, Doug Melody, and Joe Whelton. Rowe spent a lot of time in East Hartford recruiting them. He was a people person with a contagious personality and always a great leader. I’m honored to have known him and be in the pleasure of his company. He and his late wife Ginny were an example of quintessential grace and dignity. He will be missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family.”
