Why The Snow Could Bring A Heated Crowd To UConn-South Carolina

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, or just hate sports and have accidentally stumbled onto the wrong website, you know that No. 1 South Carolina faces No. 2 UConn tonight in Storrs (8 ET/ESPN2).

The game is sold out, but a winter storm in Connecticut could potentially prevent hundreds, if not thousands, of fans from making the trek. But the athletic administration at UConn is not going to let some pesky weather get in the way of a lively crowd or home-court advantage. Instead the school is asking those who won’t be able to make it to donate their tickets to students on campus.

One such student who will be in attendance tonight? Ryan Boatright, the star of the men’s basketball team. The just-named American Athletic Conference Player of the Week is hoping he can score a front-row seat in the student section and turned to Twitter for help.

To recap: The No. 1 basketball team in the country is facing the No. 2 team in the country and potentially in front of thousands of rowdy students. This really could be a game for the ages.
