Things haven’t gone as planned for UConn this season.

The Huskies have struggled to an 11-12 start and a sluggish 4-6 opening to conference play as fans have started to stay away from going to games.

Things have evidently gotten so desperate for UConn that they’re giving away free tickets to a game against USF on Wednesday night. Now, part of the reason UConn’s athletics department is giving away free tickets is that the Bulls and Huskies are two of the three worst teams in the American.

But for a program with so much national prestige, giving away free tickets to a conference home game in February is reaching embarrassing levels of apathy. UConn has dropped three consecutive games as they host USF on Wednesday.
