STORRS, Conn. – The UConn men's basketball team won't be the only people dressed in white Sunday afternoon when it challenges the nationally-ranked University of Florida at Gampel Pavilion (3 p.m.).
And the more white, the better.
It will be a White-Out Game at Gampel when the Huskies meet the Gators on campus before an expected sellout crowd. There will be white t-shirts handed out to the student section, and the rest of the crowd is encouraged to support the team by wearing white.
And anybody who forgets to wear white to the game can still join in the fun after they arrive on campus Sunday by visiting the UConn Bookstore before the game and taking advantage of a special one-day offer on Nov. 17 -- all previously-reduced spirit merchandise, 50% off the already reduced price.
Fans are also encouraged to make a visit to the UConn Basketball Hall of Champions, located in the lobby of the Werth Family UConn Basketball Champions Center, open free to the public from 11:30 a.m-12:30 p.m.
Once inside Gampel, fans can get a special "Growl Towel," first-come, first-served, while supplies last. The "Growl Towel" was produced for this game and is certain to become a collector's item.
With UConn also hosting a second-round NCAA Field Hockey Tournament game on campus on Sunday (1 p.m.), traffic could get a bit heavy, but fans can avoid the hassle by taking advantage of the UConn shuttle service to get to and from the game. All the shuttle information needed can be found HERE.
