Connecticut Huskies Basketball Road Schedule
The Connecticut Huskies are ready to hit the court this season and
take on the best competition that their conference and the NCAA world in general has to offer. The Huskies again head into
the season with a talented group of players with the potential to contend for the conference crown, and that's exactly the
fans of this college hoops program are hoping that the players can realize that potential on the basketball court. The Huskies
play in the American Athletic Conference, a new college hoops league that features some of the top programs on the college
basketball landscape. The Huskies are looking to quickly establish themselves as top dog in this conference, and they're off
to a great start. The Huskies won the National Championship last season, their first as a part of the AAC, and they'd love
to repeat as champs. To do so, the team will have to play well against some tough teams on the road this season, and the fans
will most certainly be there to support their favorite group of players, game in and game out.
The Huskies know they've
got a tough game coming their way when they head to Kentucky to take on the Louisville Cardinals this season. The Cardinals
are set to take on the Huskies in what should be a huge clash of quality teams. The Cardinals have one of the best teams in
the entire nation, led by famed head coach Rick Pitino. Pitino always has his teams playing top-notch defense year in and
year out, and that should be no different this time around. It's going to be important for the Huskies to share the basketball
on offense, swinging the ball in an effort to find an open shot. One-on-one basketball is not going to beat a disciplined
team like Louisville, and the Huskies know that. It should be a fantastic atmosphere when the Cards host the Huskies this
season, as the fans are sure to get geared up for this contest in a big way, and rightfully so. You can be there to join them
at this great matchup. The Huskies will face other tough teams this season as well, such as the Florida Gators, Stanford Cardinal
and more. Make sure to check out all of the upcoming games by taking a look at the full schedule of road matchups.

Connecticut Huskies Basketball Trivia
What National Basketball
League team selected UConn point guard Shabazz Napier in the 2014 NBA Draft?
The answer is the Miami Heat. LeBron James
had said that he thought Napier was the best points guard in the draft class leading up to draft night, and the Heat made
Napier their pick. Unfortunately for Napier, James decided to leave the Heat for the Cleveland Cavaliers, so this UConn alum
won't have the pleasure of starting his career with the King.
