The traditional start of the UConn men’s basketball campaign, “The Husky Run” is set for Thursday, Oct. 11 at 2:30 p.m. outside Gampel Pavilion. (It starts and finishes there.)
It’s a change this year. Usually its on the Wednesday before first night, but new coach Kevin Ollie is speaking, along with Geno Auriemma, in New York for the Jimmy V. Classic on Oct. 10 and he does not want to miss the run.
In fact, the head coach might be one of the favorites to win it.
If you recall, DeAndre Daniels won The Run last year. … Anyway, mark your calendar for Thursday, Oct. 11 at 2:30 p.m. We’ll post details on registration and the day’s schedule as we get them.
