UConn to honor Newtown victims before hoop games



UConn announced its plans to wear a patch in honor of the victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting and will have a moment of silence before tonight's men's game against Maryland-Eastern Shore and the women's basketball game against Oakland. Both games start at 7 p.m. and will be played at the XL Center.

Here is the release from UConn
The University of Connecticut will hold special pre-game ceremonies before the men’s basketball game on Monday and the women’s basketball game on Wednesday in honor of the tragic incidents that took place at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown last Friday.

Fans are asked to be in their seats for these games by 6:50 p.m. for the ceremonies. The UConn men play Maryland Eastern Shore on Monday at 7:00 p.m. while the women play Oakland on Wednesday at 7:00 p.m. Both games are at the XL Center in Hartford.

The UConn men’s and women’s basketball teams will both be wearing patches on their games jerseys in recognition of the tragedy. The patch is a rectangle with a green background, a black outline and the letters “SH” in white. The school colors of Sandy Hook Elementary School are green and white.

UConn bench personnel and others associated with the game will also be wearing special green and white ribbons.
