UConn players will be presented with surfboard at Saturday's football game vs. Syracuse

The UConn men's basketball team will be presented with a custom-made, eight-foot, hand-crafted surfboard to celebrate its participation in the 2016 Maui Jim Maui Invitational. 

The presentation will take place during UConn's football game against Syracuse on Saturday at Rentschler Field. It will take place following the first quarter at the 20-yard line of the UConn side of the field, opposite the scoreboard. And if it feels like this already happened during the basketball season, well, it did ... sorta. 

During halftime of a game this past season, UConn cheerleaders and other representatives of the athletics program were presented with a surfboard by the Maui Invitational folks. Of course, players were not involved in that exchange, as they will be at Saturday's football game.

The game begins at 1 p.m.

UConn will be making its fourth appearance in Maui on Nov. 21-23. The Huskies have won the title their last two trips to the tourney and are 8-1 all-time.
