It says plenty about UConn’s stature that a year before arrival, the Huskies were so much a topic of conversation. Their actual conference in 2019-20, the American Athletic Conference, doesn’t have Media Day until next week, where coaches can describe their plans for one last season to try and hang a conference loss on UConn, something that happened plenty in the Big East but hasn’t happened once in the AAC.
“We’re excited for them coming and our players are excited they’re coming,” Seton Hall head coach Tony Bozzella explained of the upcoming non-conference matchup with UConn. In typical Huskies fashion, Auriemma agreed to a home-and-home, so Seton Hall gets to enjoy the advantages of having the UConn team come to Walsh Gym on December 5.
