Intersquad Scrimmage To Highlight First Night October 18

by Categorized: UConn women's basketball Date:

We told you earlier today that something special was being planned for First Night this year on Oct. 18 at Gampel Pavilion.

Well, UConn has just announced that for the first time there will be a scrimmage involving mixed teams representing the men’s and women’s program

Gampel Pavilion doors will open at 6 p.m.  Admission is free. There will be a meet the 2013-14 men’s and women’s basketball teams as they sign autographs for Husky fans from 6 – 6:45 p.m. in the AD’s lobby (located between the East and South entrances).

And then as a part of the formal ceremonies, Geno Auriemma and Kevin Ollie will lead teams in a scrimmage. As always, there will be many zany activities and prize giveaways, perhaps even music that will totally confuse most of the women’s fan base,

We are told there will be a take-off on the TV Show “Hollywood Game Night” – but who will play the role of Jason Alexander, we do not know.

3 p.m. – FanFest on Fairfield Way
6 p.m. – Doors Open
6 p.m. – 6:45 p.m. – Autographs
7 p.m. PM – Show Begins
