The UConn women’s basketball team begins its last series of regular-season games tonight on the road at Creighton (Omaha Nebraska), for the first time in program history. After tonight's game, they head east for a stop in Indianapolis Indiana to play Butler on Saturday. UConn closes out the regular season with a home game against Marquette on Monday March 1.

UConn clinched at least a share of the Big East regular season conference title with a win at Xavier last week. The Huskies can win the championship outright with a win tonight. This is just the third all-time meeting between the Huskies and Bluejays with UConn holding a 2-0 record. UConn won this season's first meeting on Dec 17, 80-47.

Creighton is coming off a 65-41 loss to Marquette on Monday. This season, Temi Carda leads the Bluejays with 13.9 points and 3.7 assists per game. Creighton (7-9, 6-6 Big East) is sixth in the Big East standings but is in the midst of an impressive stretch, beating Seton Hall and No. 19 DePaul over the last few weeks.

UConn WBB in the news -
Husky lay up lines -
  • The Huskies are coming off an 83-32 win at Xavier last Saturday. Junior Christyn Williams led UConn with 22 points while freshman Aaliyah Edwards had her first career double-double with 16 points and 11 rebounds.
  • The Huskies are ranked No. 1 in the latest AP Poll. This is the 247th week all-time UConn has been ranked No. 1. The Huskies have earned the top spot in the poll in nine straight seasons and in 22 of the last 27 seasons. UConn has been ranked in the AP Poll for 523 consecutive weeks, including 296 straight weeks in the top 10.
  • Aaliyah Edwards isn’t worried about the freshman wall. The way the UConn women’s basketball team’s rookie forward is going, she’ll just run through it anyway. Edwards recorded her first double-double of the year Saturday with 16 points and a season high 11 rebounds. “I just like being more competitive and aggressive offensively and defensively,” Edwards said. “Whether that’s rebounding, getting my teammates open, going off pick and roll action, I like being in rhythm and being in the flow of the offense and locking down on defense.”
