The UConn men’s basketball team is visiting Newtown this afternoon (Thursday), to meet and spend some time with children there.
Don’t have a lot of details on the plans. Newtown officials asked that media stay away, and things be kept private, which we are respecting. But if and when we do get more info, we will let you know. It sounds like something informal, just the coaches and players being there, in a time and place where they can help.
As Kevin Ollie said last week, he just wants to go “and put smiles on as many faces” as the Huskies can.
We will next be able to interview coaches and players after practice in Storrs on Friday.
