WHAT TO WATCH
The Panthers have not won since defeating Old Dominion on Jan. 2. They’ve not won a conference game since defeating South Florida in the 2010-11 Big East tournament – 31 straight defeats. In addition, they have not defeated UConn since Feb. 24, 1993, a span of 27 games.
Unless the teams play in next month’s Big East tournament in Hartford, this will be the final meeting between the programs unless they are reunited someday in the ACC. The Panthers join the ACC next season with Syracuse.
4 x 1,000
This UConn team is just the fourth in its history to field four active 1,000-point scorers. Hartley (1,234 points) did it last season. Dolson (1,147), Mosqueda-Lewis (1,012) and Faris (1,000) this season.
Faris is 14 rebounds shy of 750 in her career. If she reaches that milestone, she will join Maya Moore as the players in UConn history with at least 1,000 points, 750 rebounds, 500 assists and 250 steals. … USA Basketball’s Carol Callan will preside over a pre-game ring ceremony during which Geno Auriemma, among others, will receive their commemorative rings for winning the 2012 Olympic gold medal in London. Stewart, Tuck and Moriah Jefferson (U-18] and Hartley [3x3] will also be honored.
