EUGENE, Ore. - The January 5 showdown between the University of Connecticut women's basketball team and No. 5 Notre Dame at Gampel Pavilion in Storrs, Conn. is sold out. The contest, which will be the ninth game between the two squads in the last three seasons, will be televised nationally on CBS at 4 p.m.
Three-game mini-plans and single game tickets for selected games remain on sale at UConnHuskies.com.
The Huskies hold a 29-8 advantage in the series with the Irish. More recently, UConn won 12-straight against ND from 3/7/05 - 3/8/11 but has dropped four out of the last five games since. UConn has defeated the Irish in each of the last two BIG EAST Tournament Finals but ND has come out on top in each of the last two NCAA Tournament National Semifinal matchups.
Saturday will mark the ninth regular-season game between these two teams played at Gampel Pavilion, all of which have been sellouts.
