STORRS, Conn. (AP) - UConn officials say they are expecting major traffic and parking problems because of the timing of two entertainment events on campus.

The top-ranked UConn women’s basketball team faces Notre Dame Saturday at 5 p.m. and the Boston Pops are scheduled to play down the street at the Jorgenson auditorium at 8 p.m. Both events are sold out.

That means about 10,000 basketball fans will be leaving campus just as the 2,000 concert goers arrive.

In addition, the UConn Irish dance team is performing at 7 p.m. and adjacent to campus, the Mansfield Downtown Partnership also will be welcoming scores of guests to Storrs Center from 1 to 5 p.m. for its 3rd annual Winter Welcome.

School officials are asking motorists to exercise patience and plan accordingly.
