STORRS, Conn. - UConn women’s basketball season tickets are on sale now and provide the best way for #UConnNation to enjoy what is sure to be an exciting 2017-18 season.

The 2017-18 home opener will feature a matchup against Cal, which finished the 2016-17 season with a 20-14 record and advanced to the second round of the NCAA Tournament.
Maryland, which rounds out a challenging opening weekend at home for UConn, finished last year ranked No. 4/8 and won the Big 10 regular season and tournament championships en route to completing the season with a 32-3 record. UConn is 6-0 all-time against Maryland and looked to be on a 2017 NCAA Tournament collision course with third-seeded Maryland before the Terps bowed out to seventh-seeded Oregon in NCAA Regional Semifinal.

Notre Dame finished the 2016-17 season ranked No. 2/5 nationally with a 33-4 overall record. ND won the ACC regular season and tournament championships before advancing to the regional final of the NCAA Tournament.
Louisville, which finished last season ranked No. 12/13, and the Huskies have not met since the 2014 American Athletic Conference Championship Final that saw UConn improve its record against U of L to 16-1 all-time. Last season, Louisville finished the year with a 29-8 overall record and advanced to the NCAA Regional Semifinal. The series between these two squads has been played on plenty of big stages, including the 2009 and 2013 national championship games.
