What To Watch

Rebounding From Loss

The Huskies have gone 719 games, dating to March 1993, without losing consecutive games. They are 52-0 after defeats since then.

Milestone day

Doty, Faris and Heather Buck will be honored before the game on their Senior Night along with managers Emily Plagenza, Aaron Baral, Keri Cresbaugh, Liz Montano and Kevin DeMille. The ceremony begins at 3:42 p.m.…  Faris and Mosqueda-Lewis could become the 37th and 38th players in program history to score 1,000 points before the day is done

New Sun Coach

Seton Hall coach Anne Donovan, the coach of the 2008 Olympic gold medal team, will take over the WNBA’s Connecticut Sun immediately following the end of the Lady Pirates season.

Wake-Up Call

Stewart, a front-runner for Big East Rookie of the Year, had a tough night against Baylor and has scored only six points in her last 28 minutes, shooting 2 of 13 and 0 of 5 from three. Her production is critical to UConn’s success in the Big East and NCAA Tournaments.
