As we look forward to next year, it would be awesome to get a great showing for a very winnable Charleston Classic Preseason Tourney

I’ve been taking trips to Charleston 3-4x per year for business for a while now. In the process, have gotten to know the area and it’s an easy 2hr, $200 flight from NYC.

I’ve been negotiating with Big Gun Burger Bar to host us as the official locale of UConn hoops for the weekend. Big Gun is across the street from the Dewberry, walking distance to the arena, and right near King Street. Gauging the pulse and interest of Husky Nation and seeing if we’ll get a good crew down there.

Getting back to March Madness begins with Charleston next year!!!

Like the early response. Big Gun is on the same block as the arena so working on getting them to set up outdoor/indoor projector, drink/food specials, and UConn/Charleston gear for the event.

Also, great city/venue to watch the new, young Huskies. Arena in Charleston is very intimate - not a bad seat in the place. I’ll be coming from NYC and can’t say enough good things about the area

negative me: This is the most meh exempt event I can ever remember UConn being in. Miami! Buffalo! Xavier! In a CAA gym! Don't mention Florida, its very unlikely UConn will play them since they play in CT next year.

positive me: its a great town to visit and if you go you will have a good time, especially if you bring the clubs


I suggest not being a curmudgeon and going.

Thinking about it. Never been able to go to most of these tournaments in the past because they fall on Thanksgiving week.

I’m planning on making the trip, Charleston is a nice spot. Trying to recruit some former floor-mates to join.

I'll be there for sure. I live a few hours north in Wilmington
Wilmington is also a great city. A real hidden gem. My wife and I wanted to get away for some 3 day weekend or something and I came across a good Airbnb deal there. We went it into it with no expectations and were blown away.

On Topic: I would consider making the trip from Atlanta for this. Will definitely be in Gainesville for the Florida game 2 years from now.

I’ll be there. I’m just deciding whether to drive or fly. Do I spend the $200 on a flight and $300 on a car or just go cheap and drive 13 hours from CT?
Is Charleston not a good Uber/Lyft city?
