STORRS, CT (WFSB) - A University of Connecticut men’s basketball team watch party at Gampel Pavilion has been officially sold out.

UConn announced the party over the weekend for Monday’s national championship game.

The Huskies face off against the San Diego State Aztecs at 9:20 p.m. in Houston. The game will be televised only on Channel 3/CBS.

“We got tickets right when [Saturday’s game against Miami] ended,” two fans told Channel 3. “We were already back on our phones getting tickets for [Monday] night. I think we’re going to have the same excitement as [Saturday] night and maybe even more now that we know what to expect. [We’re] looking forward to being back in Gampel.”

UConn expects the energy in Gampel to be elevated.

It certainly was on Saturday night, when the Huskies dispatched of Miami in the Final Four.

If they win, it would mark the university’s fifth national title.

To attend Monday’s watch party, students and fans had to claim tickets ahead of time. Tickets were first-come first-served and were only available while supplies lasted.

UConn said doors open at 8 p.m. and concessions will be available.
