UConn Basketball Shines in Elite 8 After Evacuation from Luxor Hotel Over Unsatisfactory Room Conditions

The UConn men’s basketball team advanced to the Elite 8 after defeating Arkansas at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Reports revealed that the NCAA had initially booked the team at the Luxor Hotel & Casino, where the players were reportedly appalled by the state of the rooms. UConn officials quickly let the NCAA know about the conditions and the team was moved to a nearby “high-level” hotel, which was identified as Resorts World Las Vegas. Despite the incident, UConn officials were not overly concerned, simply stating that “Everything worked out fine”. UConn proceeded to win the game 88-65, and will now face the Gonzaga Bulldogs in the final West Region game.

The Luxor is renowned for its hotel towers and pyramid-shaped rooms, and is one of the eight Las Vegas Strip properties with a traditional-style buffet. March Madness is estimated to generate a $4.5 billion legal handle for North American sportsbooks. UConn has won four NCAA championships and currently plays in the Big East Conference, though some fans would like to see the Huskies move to a power conference such as the ACC, B10, or B12.
