Deb Corum, UConn’s senior administrator for women’s basketball, said Sunday night that UConn and Stanford have agreed to extend their home-and-home series for at least two more years through the 2016-17 season. The teams meet next Nov. 14 in Palo Alto, Calif.
“Right now it’s for two years, but we are hoping it will be for four more years,” Corum said.
The Huskies and Cardinal began playing each other annually in 2009.
In addition, the chances are good that UConn and UCLA may begin a two-year series in 2015-16. They were close to an agreement to play next season, but those plans fell through. The programs have not played since 1999 in Connecticut, the end of their last two-game arrangement.
Corum also said the Huskies are planning to participate in an exempt tournament next Thanksgiving in Estero, Fla. – the Gulfcoast Showcase at Germain Arena – that Corum said would attract a high-level of competition.
This year’s event, which concluded Sunday, included included UCLA, NCState, MissSt, Wright State, James Madison, Grand Canyon, Middle Tenn and SE Louisiana.
