NEW ORLEANS, La. – Fresh off its 100th-straight victory against No. 6 South Carolina, the No. 1 UConn women’s basketball team travels to New Orleans Saturday, Feb. 18 to take on Tulane at Devlin Fieldhouse.

Saturday’s tip will be at 7 p.m. ET and the game will be televised regionally on SNY.

UConn (25-0, 12-0 The American) eclipsed another milestone on Monday after the Huskies won their 100th-straight game, defeating No. 6/6 South Carolina at Gampel Pavilion.


Junior Gabby Williams (Sparks, Nev.) racked up a career-high 26 points, shooting 10-19 from the floor and 6-6 from the free-throw line, in addition to 14 rebounds for her ninth double-double of the season to lift the Huskies past the Gamecocks 66-55 on Monday.

Williams, who has been relentlessly stuffing the stat sheet this season, enters Saturday’s matchup just 21-points shy of 1,000 for her career. She is currently third on the team in scoring, second in rebounding, second in blocked shots and leads the squad with 133 assists and 70 steals.

Connecticut now has an all-time record of 239-61 versus Top-25 AP ranked teams. The Huskies have won 106-straight true road games against opponents that are not ranked in the Associated Press Poll and will look to make it 107-straight on Saturday against the Green Wave.

Tulane enters Saturday’s contest fourth in the American Athletic Conference standings with a 16-10 overall record with a 7-6 conference showing. Junior Kolby Morgan, who leads the Green Wave in scoring, is fourth in the league, averaging 19.0 points per game. Morgan has earned three straight double-doubles and four in the last six games.

In its most recent matchup with Cincinnati, Tulane snapped a three-game losing streak by defeating the Bearcats 62-51 at home on Wednesday.

The Huskies and the Green Wave met earlier this season on Jan. 22 at Gampel Pavilion where UConn scored 100 points for the second time this year to breeze past Tulane 100-56. UConn is undefeated 6-0 in the all-time series against Tulane.

UP NEXT…

UConn will play its last regular season home game at the XL Center on Wednesday, Feb. 22 when it welcomes Temple for a 7 p.m. tip-off on SNY.
