STORRS, Conn. (AP) — There will be a lot of goodbyes Saturday when UConn hosts Memphis in the final game of what has been a disappointing season for both programs.
It will be the last college game for 29 seniors, 14 from UConn (2-9, 2-5 American Athletic Conference) and 15 from Memphis (3-8, 1-6).
But It also likely will be the final game at Connecticut for much of that program's coaching staff. Interim coach T.J. Weist has led the Huskies to two straight wins, but is still just 2-5 since taking the reins from Paul Pasqualoni after UConn's 0-4 start.
Athletic Director Warde Manuel will hold a news conference an hour before the game to discuss the program's future.
Memphis , which has lost two straight, will be making just the program's third trip to the Northeast for a game. The other two were at Army in 1985 and 2000. This is the second furthest north the Tigers have ever traveled. They played the 2005 Motor City Bowl in Detroit.
