Rosters set for UConn's First Night festivities

The rosters for the scrimmage portion of First Night have been announced.

Molly Bent, Napheesa Collier, Kyla Irwin, Tierney Lawlor, Kia Nurse and Azura Stevens will play for the White team, being coached by UConn men's basketball coach Kevin Ollie.

Natalie Butler, Batouly Camara, Saniya Chong, Crystal Dangerfield, Katie Lou Samuelson and Gabby Williams are a part of the Blue team coached by Geno Auriemma.

Doors open for Friday's event at 3 p.m. The first 50 students in line will be granted premium courtside seating and the first 300 fans to sign-up at the marketing table inside the South entrance at Gampel Pavilion will be granted entrance into a Selfie Session with the teams. This session will allow fans to take pictures with the members of both the men's and women's team at 5:30 p.m. That takes the place of the autograph session with the teams and head coaches.

There will be a women's volleyball game against Central Florida as a much improved UConn team puts its 13-4 record on the line.

The basketball portion of "First Night" kicks off at 7:30 p.m.

UConn is planning to hold its first official practice tomorrow as the Huskies begin the quest for an unprecedented fifth straight national title. However, the practice isn't open to the media so don't expect reports coming from the practice.

Nice to see a 12-player roster full of talent. I hope they all get decent playing time this year.

Joe, two of those players (Stevens, Camara) are transfers and won't play until next year. So ten scholarship players, but really nine for playing time, no offense to Lawlor.
