A High-Profile Start to the Basketball Season
The Hartford men will have an exceptionally high-profile start to their 2013-14 season.
The previously little-known Florida Gulf Coast University took the 2013 NCAA tournament by storm last March, surprising basketball fans and analysts alike by making it all the way to the Sweet 16.
Just one week after the Hawks play Florida Gulf Coast University, they will take on national champion Louisville as part of the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame Tournament. That game will take place in Louisville on Tuesday, Nov. 19.
In between the Florida Gulf Coast Game and the Louisville game, the Hartford men will have their home opener against Fairleigh Dickinson University. That game will take place on Friday, Nov. 15, at 7 p.m. in the Chase Family Arena.
So come watch Hartford’s nationally televised game with a special breakfast at the Commons on Nov. 12, come to the home opener on Nov. 15, and cheer on the Hawks as they enjoy a momentous start to the 2013-14 season!
