Here’s another scheduling tidbit for you … Eastern Washington is coming to play UConn on Dec. 28. Not sure if it will be at Gampel or XL, or what time, but since it is a Saturday between the holidays, I would guess a day game in Hartford. … UConn has been listed on the Eagles schedule for next year; the rebuilding Big Sky program is making an East Coast swing to play Seton Hall and UConn.
Eastern Washington will be trying to rebound from a 10-21 season, 7-7 in the Big Sky. Coach Jim Hayford’s team has two players from Germany and three from Australia, including 6-7 swing man Jois Venky, who averaged 12.3 points and 9.0 rebounds per game.
So what we know of UConn’s schedule: Maryland in Brooklyn on Nov. 8, Yale at UConn Nov. 11, BC at Madison Square Garden on Nov. 21, either Indiana or Washington at the Garden on Nov. 22, Florida at UConn on Dec. 2, Eastern Washington at UConn Dec. 28.
Still to slot in during November and December: A trip to Seattle to play Washington, possibly for a second time, with home games against Stanford and Harvard and the two preliminary 2K Classic games.
