UConn fans, rejoice. The Huskies’ first opponent in the 2013 2K Sports Classic will be the Boston College Eagles, according to ESPN’s Andy Katz. The two haven’t met since BC left the Big East for the ACC ahead of the 2005 school year.
You can bet there will be a pretty strong UConn contingent in Madison Square Garden on Thursday, November 21st.
For those unaware, UConn fans’ disdain for BC has been at an all-time high since the school reportedly “blocked” the Huskies from moving to the ACC. UConn begins play as a founding member of the AAC this year instead, which has left many fans frustrated. A win on the hardwood would certainly help to ease the pain.
The victor will get to face either Indiana or Washington on Friday, November 22nd.
