It takes great pains for the satellites — Yale, Quinnipiac, Sacred Heart, Fairfield, Central Connecticut and Hartford — to be heard individually from within the state’s UConn basketball vortex. But to the credit of the six athletic directors who made this happen on relatively short notice, the schools will meet for a college basketball season-opening triple-header at the Arena at Harbor Yard on Nov. 13. The event will move to Mohegan Sun Arena in 2010 and 2011.
