There will be a new national champ this year. UConn is NIT-bound
And somehow, I forgot to put this Kevin Ollie quote in my story:
Q. Is it going to be hard for them to gear up for (the NIT)?
COACH OLLIE: Why? You put on a UConn jersey. If you can't get gered up, then i don't want you on my team. So, no, you put on a UConn jersey, it's important when you put that jersey on and that's my message.
Here's NIT ticket info. Tickets are a real bargain:
Tickets for Wednesday night’s first round game vs. Arizona State are priced at $10 apiece and $4 for UConn students.
UConn Club members and Husky season tickets holders can purchase tickets at UConnTickets.com during an exclusive time period of Sunday night through Monday at noon.
Tickets to the general public will go on sale Monday at noon at UConnTickets.com and will have the ability to select their seats and print tickets at home. Tickets can also be purchased by visiting the UConn Ticket Office in Storrs or by calling the UConn Ticket Office at 1-877-AT-UCONN from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
UConn students can purchase tickets at the box office in Storrs, including game night.
Parking at the North and South Garages will be available for $5 on Wednesday night, which is paid upon entry to the garage.
