New York City, December 4-6
The first weekend of December is all about rivalries in New York. Friday night, Dec. 4 the Brooklyn Nets make the trip across the East River to play the surprisingly resurgent Knicks at Madison Square Garden. Back in Brooklyn, the New York Islanders, recent transplants to the Barclay's Center, host the St. Louis Blues. Saturday, enjoy New England's foliage as you drive up 95 to see one of the best collegiate programs of our time, the UConn's women's basketball team, as they host a rival Notre Dame team that they squashed in last year's title game. Sunday is the big day, as the Giants and Jets tangle at Met Life Stadium in a battle for Big Apple pride with potential playoff spots on the line for both teams.
