March 20 (Game 61): Women’s NCAA Tournament First Round vs. Hartford


What: Women’s Basketball NCAA First Round vs. Hartford

Where: Gampel Pavillion

When: Sunday, March 20, 12:05 PM

Result: Win 75-39

This was an interesting contest. It was my first NCAA Tournament game attended and it was a lot different from regular UConn Women’s games. For starters, the student section was in Section 204, in the upper level of the arena, pretty much in the corner. The view was less than stellar. But what do you expect? They want the people who pay more to have the better view. Basic Economics.

Hartford brought their band and their mascot and cheerleaders. It was the first time I’ve seen a visiting team bring those to Gampel. But it was the tournament, and they’re half an hour away, so I shouldn’t be surprised.

As for the game itself, it was a blowout. UConn came out a bit slow, but we never trailed the whole game. Nobody scored more than 12, but five players were in double figures. It was ultimately a very good game. I did not stick around to watch Kansas State-Purdue,  but Purdue won 53-45, so we will face them on Tuesday. I will be there again. Go Huskies!
