The UConn women’s basketball team has scheduled homecoming games for its senior duo of Kia Nurse and Gabby Williams for the 2017-18 season. The Huskies will travel to Reno for a November 28 contest against the Wolfpack and will square-off against Duquesne in Toronto on December 22.

“I am so thankful and beyond excited to play a homecoming game this year! Having the chance to play in front of family and friends who would not otherwise get the chance is incredible,” Nurse said. “Getting the chance to inspire young Canadian basketball players is an added bonus!”

“I am extremely grateful for this opportunity to play in front of so many family members and friends who have never seen me play at this level,” said Williams. “I grew up watching my sister play at Nevada, so to finally play in Lawlor is a blessing.”

Be on the lookout tomorrow for the team’s home non-conference schedule to be released in conjunction with 2017-18 season tickets going on sale!
