Basketball Season Opens This Weekend!
Basketball season officially gets under way this weekend, as the Hartford women hold their regular season home opener tonight (Friday), and the men host the Connecticut 6 Classic at Chase Arena on Saturday.
The women’s basketball team will play its first game of the season on Friday, Nov. 9, against Loyola. Tip-off is at 7 p.m. at Chase Arena in the Reich Family Pavilion.
All regular season home games are free for University of Hartford students. Friday’s game will include a student-only backpack giveaway as well as a chance for one randomly selected student to win a Honda Fit car!
Faculty and staff should have received ticket vouchers (through intercampus mail) for free admission to the women’s game on Nov. 9 and the men’s regular season home opener against Sacred Heart on Nov. 16. Bring your voucher and your University of Hartford ID to receive your free ticket. Friends and family attending with faculty and staff may purchase tickets for $5 each, more than half off the regular price.
