STORRS, Conn.- The No. 3 UConn women’s basketball squad returns to Storrs on Tuesday night when they welcome Marquette (11-10, 3-5 BIG EAST) for a 7 p.m. contest. The Huskies enter the game with a 20-1 overall record and 7-1 mark in league action after defeating St. John’s 71-65 on Saturday.

UConn had four Huskies register double-digits in the January win with Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis scoring 24 points and Stefanie Dolson tallied 20 points.
