    To do so, go to the bottom left of any screen, click the style currently selected (boneyard or dark), then click AO. If you still have the problem after switching, send me a screen capture.

Why does this stuff always happen at UConn? I swear the athletic department could screw up a one car funeral.

Ultimately, First Night morphed into Worst Night, thanks to technical difficulties. The basketball capital couldn’t get two baskets raised and lined up. After the women’s team scrimmaged four-on-four, half court, with many fans already on their way out of the building, Hurley called it a night.

What an embarrassing event from UConn Operations. A packed house of students excited to watch the teams play and they can't get a stream or basketball set up properly. Can't look much more amateur than this.

That’s life as a mid- major. Probably don’t have enough money to fix the baskets.

I could be wrong, but I don’t think AD David Benedict is involved in the planning and execution of first night
And thus it fails?

This event is amateur hour every year. Who's bright idea was it to let RJ and Westbrook insult each other?
This was far from the worst part…maybe if RJs mic worked?! Or…wait for it…we actually saw some actual basketball

Woah, I typed AD.DB and it auto corrected to his full name apparently. Didn’t mean to sound like some sycophant. On second thought, we can definitely blame him for the Flosports disaster, just not the broken hoop thing

Is there a recording available yet?
What's the use of a recording? Nothing happened. Unless you wanted to see the women scrimmage 4 on 4 in the half court.

I just kinda wanna see the car crash for myself. Plus I heard some of the intros were funny.

the whole thing was low rent. digital skilz are consistently sketchy at state u. spare us the lawyering and excuse-making. it stunk.
that's not how it works. that's not how any of this works.

it's 2021, soon to be 2022.
