Gov. Ned Lamont is set to join the 2023 NCAA championship-winning UConn men’s basketball team and Head Coach Dan Hurley Wednesday morning to ring the opening bell at the New York Stock Exchange.

The opening bell will ring from 9:26 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. at the NYSE's building, 11 Wall St., in the Financial District of Lower Manhattan in New York City.

The bell-ringing honors UConn’s win of its fifth national championship last week over San Diego State University. The team won six straight games in this year’s tournament by an average of 20 points.
The NYSE's opening and closing bells mark the beginning and the end of each trading day. 

Frequently, the NYSE taps celebrities and executives from corporations to stand behind the podium and push the button that signals the bells to ring. The practice of having special guests ring the bells on a regular basis began in 1995.

Other notable bell-ringers include athletes such as Joe DiMaggio of the New York Yankees, rapper Snoop Dogg, singer and actress Liza Minnelli, along with members of the New York police and fire departments after 9/11, and members of the U.S. Armed Forces serving overseas.
