San Diego State joined the Big East as a football-only school last week, but the Aztecs and Huskies will apparently be seeing each other on the basketball court sometime in the near future.
A school official confirmed that UConn and San Diego State have agreed to a home-and-home series. At the moment, there is no date, contract or details.
“It has not progressed anywhere beyond an initial conversation, but certainly will at some point soon,” the official said.
If you recall, the Huskies and Aztecs met in last season’s Sweet 16. Kemba Walker exploded for 36 points — one of the best games of his career — and Jeremy Lamb scored a season-high 24 to lead UConn to a 74-67 win. It was the first-ever meeting between the two schools.
