The UConn Men’s Basketball team shocked the world last season, winning the national title against the Kentucky Wildcats. They entered the tournament as a seven seed, probably a higher seed than their body of work dictated, but clearly an indication that the Huskies were expected to bow out early in the tournament.
That was simply not the case and the Shabazz Napier-led Huskies eventually cut down the nets. It will be a different team this season with Napier, DeAndre Daniels, and Niels Giffey all gone and it will also be much more expensive to purchase UConn men’s basketball tickets. Below is a breakdown of the top three most expensive games on the UConn schedule.
1.) November 30, 2014 vs. Texas Longhorns | Gampel Pavilion | Average Ticket Price = $256.48
According to UConn partner Easy Seat, the most expensive game in Connecticut this year will be when the Longhorns visit Gampel Pavilion the last day of November. The average ticket price is currently just above $250 with the cheapest tickets available starting at $170. Rick Barnes and company have not been in national title talks for quite some time now, but they are still a big draw on the road and the most well-known program visiting the Huskies this season.
2.) March 1, 2015 vs. SMU Mustangs | XL Center | Average Ticket Price = $240.36
The Huskies lost to the Larry Brown led Mustangs last season 64-55 at SMU. They’ll try to return the favor this season when SMU visits on a Sunday afternoon on the 1st of March. SMU expects to be one of the better teams in the AAC and this will undoubtedly be a hotly-contested game.
3.) December 31, 2014 vs. Temple Owls | XL Center | Average Ticket Price = $180.71
What better way to ring in the New Year than to catch a UConn Huskies game? They’ll host Temple at 1:00 PM EST on the 31st of December for a Wednesday afternoon matchup. You’ll have plenty of time to do other festivities once the game is finished so make sure to grab your tickets now!
