UConn Men's Basketball: Huskies may host Auburn this season

John Reed-USA TODAY Sports

According to a source yet to be confirmed, the Auburn Tigers men's basketball team will visit the XL Center this upcoming season on December 23rd.

Last season the Tigers were 11-20, ranked 213th on KenPom. Russell Steinberg had reported that UConn was looking for a home-and-home series with a major program. Auburn is not the most attractive opponent, but at the very least they are a name brand, competing in a P5 conference. The Huskies could have done far worse filling their void on next season's schedule.
