UConn men’s basketball deals with hotel switch, stolen items on Las Vegas trip
LAS VEGAS, NV (WFSB) - It’s a day of rest and recovery for the UConn men after their big Sweet 16 win Thursday night over Arkansas.
UConn’s game execution was nearly flawless on Thursday.
But the travel and accommodations in Las Vegas were certainly nowhere near perfection.
The Huskies arrived at the world famous Las Vegas Strip.
They were assigned to the Luxor Hotel by the NCAA.
Many of the players’ rooms were not cleaned. Head Coach Dan Hurley called it a “disaster.”
The team went down the strip to another hotel, Resorts World.
As the team practiced on the UNLV campus before the Huskies’ Sweet 16 matchup with Arkansas, their team bus was robbed.
Players said several personal items were stolen.
UNLV police said it received a report of the theft to the UConn team bus.
The theft happened as the team practiced at Thomas & Mack arena, UNLV police said.
“University Police Services detectives have been working this case and are actively following up on all investigative leads,” UNLV police said.
Anyone with information on the theft is asked to contact UNLV police.
The UConn players have done a good job of not letting these troubles affect play on the court.
