The Greater Hartford Pro-Am summer basketball league has regained its certification from the NCAA, allowing Division I basketball players to once again participate.  Some prominent players from UConn and the area are expected to play.

UConn and Notre Dame have finalized the dates for their football series.  The actual locations for UConn’s “home games” – which will be played at either the new Giants’ Stadium or at Gillette Stadium – are still undetermined.
