Details on First Night

Here are some details on the First Night festivities on Oct. 14.

First, the most important part - admission is free and open to the public and the event will begin at 7 p.m.

There will be FanFest located outside the North entrance of Gampel Pavilion and on Fairfield Way beginning at 5 p.m. for inflatable games, food, music and fun. Gampel Pavilion doors will open at 6 p.m. featuring an autograph session with both teams, followed by performances from the band, cheer and dance squads, introductions of the players and coaches, a dunk and three-point contest and ultimate prize giveaways.

The show will end at approximately at 8 p.m. with a performance by Simon Sez.

As for the recruits expected to be there, when I spoke to Morgan Tuck during the summer, she said she was planning to be there while Breanna Stewart will be taking a wait and see approach. I will try to get an update on Tuck, Stewart and fellow commit Moriah Jefferson.

I did reach out to the players UConn is recruiting in the Class of 2013 and the only concrete info I was able to get was that Karlie Samuelson was not planning to make the trip East for the event according to her AAU coach Russ Davis.

The Fan Fest will take place on the streets surrounding Gampel Pavilion. You won't be able to miss it if you are at Gampel.
