UConn Announces Nov. 8 Starting Time

STORRS (July 26, 2013) — The University of Connecticut, in conjunction with  Barclays Center, the University of Maryland, the University of Louisville, and ESPN, has announced the starting times of two major sporting events taking place on the same night this fall.
