STORRS – Looking live at Gampel Pavilion, the start of Senior Night Festivities about 15 minutes away, the start of the Huskies game against Rutgers about 40 minutes away. Both have been on the floor shooting, the UConn Pep Band is killing it.

… Hearing the seniors will start for UConn tonight – meaning Niels Giffey, Lasan Kromah, Tyler Olander and Shabazz Napier, with DeAndre Daniels.

It would be just a few minutes, of course, before Ryan Boatright and Amida Brimah check in for Giffey and Olander.

Your officials tonight: Bryan Kersey, John Gaffney, Brian O’Connell.

UConn has made the live stream of the festivities free for all on uconnhuskies.com.

Houston clinched the sixth seed in the AAC Tournament, so if the Huskies can move up to No. 3 they would play the Cougars in the first game.

Here is our story from the Wednesday Courant, and our capsule look at the matchup.

Jeff Jacobs and I will be tweeting all evening from  the festivities, so follow us on Twitter @AmoreCourant and @JacobsCourant.
