WHAT TO WATCH FOR
Time for a promotion
The Associated Press Top 25 poll should be released just before tipoff and it’s expected that UConn will be No. 1 for the first time since the last week of the 2010-11 season.
Good for the Ducks
At one point, Oregon was down to a seven-player rotation and played without as many as five with starting experience. But many of those missing players are making their way back … Oregon leads the Pac-12 in blocked shots and free throw shooting and is averaging a league-leading 5.8 blocks per game. Alleyne broke the school and Pac-12 Conference rebounding record in UO’s double-overtime home loss to Portland State. In the same game, just her second as a collegiate player, Alleyne also matched the school record for points with 38. The 27 rebounds bettered the previous Pac-12 mark set nearly 20 years ago by UCLA’s Natalie Williams.
Next up – Notre Dame
The Huskies return home right after the game to begin preparation for their first meeting of the year with Notre Dame on Saturday at Gampel Pavilion in the Big East opener. Game time is 4 p.m. on CBS.
