Ticket sales going well for UConn's next two "home" games

It certainly has the makings of an interesting weekend of basketball.

For years when UConn played a game in Connecticut the choices were either on campus in Storrs or in Hartford. We knew that was going to change this season and it will all going occur over the next four days.

Tomorrow night the Huskies will play No. 25 DePaul at Webster Bank Arena and then on Sunday comes a game against UCLA at Mohegan Sun Arena.

I reached out to Charlie Dowd at Webster Bank Arena and the people at Mohegan Sun Arena and the Basketball Hall of Fame to get an update on tickets sold for the Huskies home away from home games.

Dowd said ticket sales for tomorrow's game are in the high 7,000s and headed to a sellout while Greg Procino of the Hall of Fame said about 7,000 tickets have been sold for the UCLA game.

I know there was a day when more than 10,000 would show up for a game regardless of the opponent, day of the week and time of year but those days have come and gone. Getting crowds in the 7,000-8,000 range is pretty solid with UConn on break between semesters and playing games away from campus.
