UConn (11-4) fell to Temple, 55-53, on Jan. 5 at the XL Center in Hartford before bouncing back with a thrilling 81-78 victory over Memphis on Saturday night at Gampel Pavilion.

Tulsa enters the tilt with a 10-6 overall record and a 2-2 mark in conference play. The Golden Hurricane returns all five starters from last season's 23-win team, led by a senior guard duo of Shaquille Harrison (16.6 ppg) and James Woodard (16.3 ppg).
Connecticut has won both of its road matchups in 2015-16 and owns a 17-16 record in true road games under fourth-year head coach Kevin Ollie. Following the game, UConn will head to Texas for a Sunday showdown with Houston set for 2 p.m. on CBS Sports Network.
