The UConn menâ€™s basketball team will get quite familiar with Butler at the end of this month.
The Huskiesâ€™ New Yearâ€™s Day game against the Bulldogs that was wiped out by COVID issues in the UConn program has been rescheduled for Jan. 18, the Big East Conference announced Thursday.
UConn was already scheduled to play Butler Jan. 20. So the teams will meet in Hartford Jan. 18, a game that will start at 7 p.m. and be seen on FS1, then will face off two days later in Indianapolis.
UConn officials said fans can use their original tickets for the rescheduled Butler game at the XL Center.
