STORRS, Conn. – Prepared to face its fifth Top-25 opponent of the 2017-18 season, the top-ranked University of Connecticut women’s basketball team heads south for an American Conference showdown at No. 22 USF, Saturday night.
UConn (12-0, 2-0), who defeated No. 10/9 Stanford, No. 20/25 Cal, No. 15/13 Maryland, No. 5/5 UCLA and No. 3/2 Notre Dame earlier this year, looks to improve on its impressive all-time record of 246-62 (.798) versus Top-25 AP ranked teams. UConn is 60-24 all-time on the road against ranked opponents and 37-11 in road games against ranked teams since 2004-05.
The Huskies and USF both own a 2-0 clip in conference action heading into Saturday’s tilt. UConn most recently defeated ECU 96-35 on Wednesday afternoon while the Bulls took down Cincinnati 69-46 last week.
The Huskies are 23-0 all-time against USF in a series that dates back to the 2002-03 season. UConn’s overtime victory against the Bulls on December 1, 2004 marked the last time the Huskies won a game that went into extra time.
UConn returns home on Tuesday, January 9 for a midweek clash against UCF in American play.
