Friday’s boys basketball game between second-ranked Notre Dame-West Haven and Hamden has been moved to the University of New Haven.
Notre Dame moved the game last week. “We’d rather play at home, but this is for the fans,” Notre Dame athletic director Tom Marcucci said.
Marcucci said the school has discussed with the university about moving some home games this season, but Friday was the only available date at UNH and the only one that will move during the regular season, according to Marcucci.
The last time these two teams met on Jan. 6, the game at the approximate 1,000-seat Hamden High gym sold out by 6 p.m.. Notre Dame seats about half of that amount. New Haven lists the seating capacity of Charger gym at approximately 1,500.
The Fairfield Prep game on Dec. 23, Notre Dame’s home opener, was the only sellout so far this season at Notre Dame.
Tickets will be sold at UNH beginning at 6 p.m. Prices are $5 for adults, $3 for students and senior citizens. Passes will be honored.
