The University of Connecticut released the 2007-08 Men’s Basketball schedule today and for the first time in 9 years, they will play 18 Big East games. The non-conference portion of the schedule this year is a little tougher as well.

The Huskies will start out playing in the 2K Sports College Hoops Classic benefiting Coaches vs. Cancer against undetermined opponents. They will also face Gonzaga in the Hall of Fame Classic as well as travel to Indiana to play the Hoosiers.

Besides the Big East games at home, Georgia Tech highlights the rest of the home schedule as well as a visit from Tom Moore’s Quinnipiac Braves team.

With the 18 game schedule in the Big East this year, the Huskies will face Cincinnati, Notre Dame and Providence twice. At least 13 of the games will be on national TV and that could go up to at least 15 or so during the regular season.
