Will Webster Bank Arena get UConn’s Men’s BB December 28 date? Women’s Jan. 11 date?

There’s just one game on the 2013-14 UConn men’s basketball schedules that doesn’t have a venue — yet. And that’s the December 28 game against Eastern Washington. It seems that will be the one game that comes to Bridgeport’s Webster Bank Arena, IF … WBA president Howard Saffan writes a large enough check, that is. Hopefully, he’s already signed it and handed it to Huskies AD Warde Manuel.
The same thing with the UConn women. The only date TBD is the Jan. 11 noon game against Temple. Yes, the Sound Tigers play that night but not until 7 p.m., pleanty of time for the crack WBA crew to break down the basketball floor and clean the ice for the 7 p.m. faceoff.
It’s taken a LONG time to get UConn to play a game here in Fairfield County and suffice to say, Saffan and Harbor Yard VP Charlie Dowd better not let the Huskies slip through their fingers. Get it done, fellas, get it done. NOW.
