The UConn men’s basketball team successfully made it to the Final Four, and it got a little help from the Patriots.
New England this week lent one of its two team airplanes — popularly known as the “AirKrafts” — to the Huskies for their travel to Houston. UConn shared photos of players boarding the plane in a tweet Wednesday evening.
Take a look:
The fourth-seeded Huskies will face the fifth-seeded Miami Hurricanes on Saturday night for the right to advance to the National Championship Game. Tip-off from NRG Stadium is scheduled for 8:49 p.m. ET.
UConn will be looking to earn a spot in the title game for the fifth time in program history. The Huskies’ lone Final Four loss came in 2009 and they’re 4-0 in championship games, including their last appearance in 2014.
