Plans Set for First Night, Husky Run

This year's First Night festivities will include a new wrinkle: women's volleyball!!!!

The Oct. 12 festivities get underway with a FanFest outside Gampel Pavilion starting at 3 p.m. on Fairfield Way. Gampel's door open at 4 p.m., with fans able to watch the UConn-Cincinnati volleyball match.

The autograph session will be held from 5:30-6:30 p.m., and the event begins at 7 p.m. (How long do volleyball matches last, anyway? Hopefully not more than three hours).

Also, the annual Husky Run tradition will be continued under new coach Kevin Ollie. The run around campus is slated to be held on Oct. 10. That could change, since Ollie will be in New York City that day for a Jimmy V Classic Dinner and wouldn't be able to attend the Husky Run. But as of now, the run is still Oct. 10.

Meanwhile ... not all the news about former UConn basketball players has been good lately.
