People are coming to see Bouknight. Immediately after the SMU game Bouk tweeted a picture of a billboard for the game saying “Be there”. There finally seems to be some light at the end of the tunnel drawing fans back in.

I went on the school site on Wednesday and only singles were left, I bought two in 221 off Seatgeek for under $40 total.

Plenty left there, but not at that price point.

Interested in Bouk, but I think Gaffney is my favorite "re-energizer Husky (Are puns trademarkable? Has this been coined yet? I'm taking credit for it until otherwise proven.)."

So after doing some quick research it looks like this would be the first sellout since the the 1/20/2018 Nova game. However that was only announced at 15,564.

The last 16,000+ crowd was 3/1/2014 game vs. Cincy which was 16,294.
The bar dropped capacity to 15564

I was at both these games. The Cinci game was more crowded. That Nova game was listed as a sell out but there were a decent amount of empty seats.

The best game in Hartford in my recent memory was the St.Patty's day game in the AAC tourney final against SMU. The crowds and games are starting to get better though - AZ last year, Wichita State this year. There have been some dark days...we made it out.

So glad this game is in Hartford. A sold out XL is WAY more fun than a sold out Gampel. We are getting our party started at the Federal around 1:00.
We're definitely going to get up there early to grab a drink or two, is this the best bar to go to pregame? I want the best atmosphere to get us pumped up before the game.

It's a good one. A guy I know is organizing a get together there, but it's totally open to the public. Should be fun. Russian Lady is good too. And Vaughn's on Pratt Street. Heck, I've hit up the lobby bar at the Hilton and there were fans getting their drink on there too!

Somehow never went in that place. We were always at the Civic Pub or Russian Lady and Challenges was the spot to watch games.
You gotta try the Fed. A classic dive. One of the few remaining.

There are very very few fanbases that can draw 16k for a barely .500 team on a mid-February Sunday against Memphis State.

the UConn fanbase is good. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise (especially other UConn fans)
