Patriots Lend Plane To UConn Basketball Team For Final Four Travel

The Huskies will face Miami on Saturday


March 31

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.
