The storied Connecticut Huskies spent last season on the bench in terms of eligibility. In fact, about a year ago at this time, the team had tipped off their season in a tough situation.

They found themselves ineligible for NCAA tournament play before they had even competed. This was due to poor performance in the classroom in past years. In spite of these issues, UConn finished their season at 20-10 and would have been in strong contention for a postseason bid. But that was yesterday.

The Huskies are eligible now. This year, the coaches, players, and fans are hungry for what should be an exciting season. Things are looking good so far, as the Huskies are ranked number 19 according to the Associated Press Top 25 poll going into Week 2. And, they’re off to a 2-0 start after beating Maryland and Yale.

“The Huskies have an outstanding program and are poised for another great season. And, they are just one of many exciting college teams with the potential for a postseason run,” said Felina Martinez at online ticket marketplace

“That’s why we’re proud to offer fans the most comprehensive and continuously updated selection of sports tickets online, with a worry-free guarantee to protect their purchase,” said Martinez.

Head coach Kevin Ollie, who guided the team to victories over ranked teams Michigan State, Notre Dame and Syracuse last season, returns along with standout guards Shabazz Napier and Ryan Boatright, who both received conference preseason honors. The two accounted for a combined 940 points and 260 assists in Connecticut’s 30 games last season and hope to improve on that success in their upcoming games.

With three NCAA Tournament Championships (1999, 2004 and 2011), seven Big East Tournament Championships and ten Big East regular season titles, Connecticut ranks among the premier programs in all of college basketball. The Huskies have participated in four NCAA Final Fours and appeared in the NCAA tournament 31 times with numerous players having achieved professional success later in their careers, including Ray Allen and Rudy Gay.
