STORRS, Conn. –
After splitting the series with Merrimack 1-1, the University of Connecticut women’s ice hockey team will host No. 10 Boston University on Tuesday, Jan. 10 at the Freitas Ice Forum. Puck drop is slated for 7 p.m.

The Huskies (10-8-3) are 5-5-1 in conference play after splitting the home-and-home with Merrimack. UConn claimed a 3-2 victory at home Friday with a third period game-winner from freshman Briana Colangelo (Whitby, Ont.), but the scales tilted in Merrimack’s favor on Saturday as the Warriors scored with three seconds left in the third to claim the 3-2 decision.

UCONN LEADERS
Leah Lum – 18 points (11g, 7a)
Theresa Knutson – 17 points (8g, 9a)
Briana Colangelo – 17 points (6g, 11a)

UConn and BU met earlier this season in the beginning of December. BU dished out a 4-1 loss to the Huskies in game-one at Freitas, but UConn battled back in game-two on the road at Walter Brown Arena. UConn led BU 1-0 after the first with a goal from senior Kelly Harris (Canton, Mich.), but BU scored to tie it up 1-1 in the second.

Junior Marisa Maccario (Marblehead, Mass.) scored the short-handed, game-winning goal in the second period and the Huskies held onto their lead for the win. It was the first time UConn had defeated BU since the 2009-10 season.

SCOUTING THE TERRIERS
Record: 12-7-2, 7-6-1 WHEA
The Series: 23-9-4, BU leads
Last Time Out: Dec. 3, 2016 | Boston, Mass.| UConn wins 2-1 

After splitting the series 1-1 with UConn earlier this season, BU closed out 2016 with another split series with non-conference Minnesota. Although the Terriers lost 5-1 in the first matchup against the Golden Gophers, BU bounced back in game-two, defeating Minnesota 6-5 in overtime.

Boston University has only had one game so far in 2017 where it played BC to a 1-1 tie after overtime. The Terriers led the Eagles 1-0 after two periods with a goal from Nina Rodgers, but BC tied the game up 1-1 in the third.

BU LEADERS
1. Mary Parker – 26 points (17g, 9a)
2. Victoria Bach – 26 points (12g, 14a)
3. Maddie Elia – 19 points (7g, 12a)

That tie against No. 6 Boston College bumped BU into the No. 10 spot of the USCHO top-10 poll. The Terriers are also receiving votes in the USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine poll.

UP NEXT…

The Huskies will meet Providence for the first time this season on Saturday, Jan. 14 for a 2 p.m. puck-drop at Freitas. UConn is then on the road at Providence on Sunday, Jan. 15.
