The UConn women’s basketball team will open up the 2015-16 season this Monday night in Columbus, OH against The Ohio State Buckeyes.
They’ll have their home opener on November 28, 2015 at the XL Center against the Kansas St. Wildcats. They won’t make their Gampel Pavilion debut until December 5 when they’ll host the Notre Dame Fighting Irish in a rematch of last year’s National Championship Game.
While it might be like pouring salt into the wounds of the Fighting Irish to celebrate last season’s national championship then, head coach Geno Auriemma didn’t want his charges to be distracted and opted to hold the ring ceremony and banner raising before last Sunday’s exhibition game vs Vanguard.
This allows the Huskies to officially close the book on the 2015 National Championship and concentrate on the task at hand, their fourth straight national championship.
Watch and/or listen below as Auriemma and Moriah Jefferson talk about getting the rings and raising the banner last weekend.
