STORRS--Cheers rang out through Gampel Pavilion on Friday night as the Huskies kicked off another basketball season.

Both the men's and women's UConn basketball players came out to celebrate their First Night on the court, and boy was it a full house, complete with crowds yelling and the band playing along.

While team's typically would start practices after First Night, both teams have already  been on the court practicing to get used to new league rules.

Both Geno Auriemma and Kevin Ollie also spoke to the crowd about what's in store for the teams.

Now, are we ready for a record fifth-straight NCAA title?!
