CINCINNATI at No. 3 UCONN
When:
Wednesday, 7 p.m. est

Where: Gampel Pavilion, Storrs Records: Cincinnati (9-5, 1-0); UConn (12-1, 1-0)

TV: SNY/ESPN3 Radio: UConn/IMG Sports Network — 97.9 ESPN-Hartford, WINE 940 AM-Brookfield, WGCH 1490 AM-Greenwich, WICC 600 AM-Bridgeport, WAVZ 1300 AM-New Haven, WXLM 980 AM-New London, WATR 1320 AM-Waterbury, WILI 1400 AM-Willimantic


KEEP AN EYE ON:

They’re back: UConn is playing its first home game since Dec. 8 against Seton Hall, a 99-61 victory at the XL Center in Hartford, and only its second this season at Gampel Pavilion. The Huskies opened their season in Storrs with an 85-53 win over Ohio State on Nov. 11. Some old fashioned home cooking is just what the doctor ordered.

“That’s unbelievable, right?” coach Geno Auriemma said following Sunday’s 81-61 win over Houston. “We’ve played everywhere in the country except at home. It’ll be good, it’ll be good to get on our home court.”

The Huskies, 12-1 and ranked No. 3 in the country, have traveled more than 7,000 miles since their last home game. They recently completed a two-game swing through Texas that included their first regular-season loss since 2014, a 68-57 setback at Baylor.

“It was a long trip,” senior Napheesa Collier said. “I think we’re all a little tired. It’ll be good to get back playing in Gampel again, finally.”

Five of the Huskies’ final nine regular-season home games will be in Storrs. “We have two games on campus (this week),” said Auriemma, whose team also hosts USF on Sunday. “That’s unheard of for us. It’ll be nice to kind of settle in before we head on the road the following week.”

Finally Eric, Meg, and Justine. After listening to all the idiots out there who called the UConn WBB games we get back to sanity with SNY and their crew.
That’s a bit coarse, but I have to agree mostly. The SNY team and the IMG crew do a great job, in part because they understand their audience and they know the Huskies. Play-by-play isn’t easy, but it’s not nuclear phyics, either.

Kara very blunt with her assessment of UConn. Basically we are playing a team of 5 qt 40' per, weaknesses all over the place on defense, transition etc.
