The UConn men’s basketball team released venues for its schedule Thursday afternoon, and there’s still one TBA remaining.

A source told The Connecticut Post’s Rich Elliott that the TBA will indeed be at the WBA. The UConn men will host Eastern Washington at Bridgeport’s Webster Bank Arena on Dec. 28, and the UConn women come to Fairfield County for a tilt with Temple on Jan. 11.

Aside from the single-game change-of-scenery, the men welcome a few marquee opponents to their traditional home: Florida visits Gampel Pavilion on Dec. 2 and defending national champion Louisville — along with ESPN’s College Gameday — will be in Storrs on Jan. 18. Other Gampel opponents include Harvard (Jan. 8),  Central Florida (Jan. 11), Houston (Jan. 30), Southern Methodist (Feb. 23) and Rutgers (March 5).

UConn opens its home slate at the XL Center in a Nov. 11 doubleheader with the women’s squad. Kevin Ollie and Co. take on Yale at 3 p.m., followed by a UConn/Stanford women’s matchup at 7 p.m.

The remainder of UConn’s XL schedule looks like this: Loyola, Md. (Nov. 26), Maine (Dec. 6), Stanford (Dec. 18), Temple (Jan. 21), USF (Feb. 12), Memphis (Feb. 15), and Cincinnati (March 1).
