They have opened their season with losses to Louisville and Penn State.
Hall of Fame
Blair is among the members of newest class to be inducted into the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame next year. The group also includes former UConn guard and Hartford coach Jen Rizzotti.
UConn junior guard Bria Hartley continues to miss time with her severely sprained ankle. The Huskies are pointing to Thursday’s game against Wake Forest at the Paradise Jam as a likely date for her return.
The Aggies have shot only 33.1 percent from the field this season (40 of 121), just 21.7 percent from three (5 of 23). The Huskies made 63.6 percent of their shots (42 of 66) in the opening win over College of Charleston.
