First Night Reminder (As If You Needed One): There May Be Fog

by Categorized: Big East women's basketball, UConn women's basketball Date:

First Night festivities begin at Gampel Pavilion at 7 p.m. Doors open at 4 p.m.,with the UConn volleyball team facing Cincinnati.

Yankees-Orioles Game 5 first pitch is 5:07 p.m. And it is wedding Friday on TLC. Just saying.

The UConn band, cheer and dance squads will be there. Introductions of the players and coaches on the men’s and women’s basketball teams will be conducted. A dunk contest highlighted by Ryan Boatright and, we hear Breanna Stewart, will ensue.

People will take three-point shots. There is a good chance a smoke machine will be working. And if you ever wanted to see UConn President Susan Herbst in a UConn sweatshirt, this may be your chance.

Prizes and autographs will be dispersed. If you want autographs, they will be dished between 5:30 and 6:30. If you want prizes, you’ll just have to hope the fates are kind to you.

We suspect, Caroline Doty and Stefanie Dolson may even have choreographed a special dance routine.

Admission is free. The show is expected to end at approximately 8 p.m.  Traffic will back up soon after, but likely not at the Gampel garage because it’s so darn expensive to park there, isn’t it?

Saniya Chong, a 5-foot-9 guard from Ossining, N.Y., and Erica McCall, a 6-3 forward from Bakersfield, Calif., will be in attendance on official business.

DO NOT SPEAK TO THEM. DO NOT ASK THEM FOR DIRECTIONS. DO NOT HAND THEM COOKIES. IF THEY ASK QUESTIONS, MAKE BELIEVE YOU ARE VISITING FROM SETON HALL.

Please, save yourself from the trouble.

  1. Seaton Hall Disguise

    I am representing Mother Seaton can you direct me to our hall?? NO?? Then can we talk about how great it would be if you attended UConn for the next 4 or 5 years. All the old folks will make you a daughter, the sons will try to date you, the Restaurants my try to give you free meals. Geno will be nice to you (at least until the first practice) So I guess you are making up you minds–we can do that for you. OH, you really know where Seaton Hall is ?? No I really don’t want to go there–Hey, let me go (I didn’t know the NCAA could arrest me just for asking for directions!!!)..
