TheOpenThread: UConn women vs. #3 Notre Dame

Because hey - why not? We'll have a preview up for the UConn men's game against Michigan sometime late tonight.

In the meantime, use this thread to talk about the ESPN Saturday night game of the week, from Gampel Pavilion.

It's hard to write previews for a team that's never tested, and hasn't been tested at all during their 55-game win streak. So I will add my customary note that the UConn women are awesome at basketball.

As for Notre Dame, they have several talented players to keep an eye on - freshman Skylar Diggins (13.5 ppg), and seniors Melissa Lechlitener and Ashley Barlow. All three are guards, though, and Notre Dame will be extremely vulnerable in the post. Tina Charles is likely to have a pretty big game, and Maya Moore is not likely to score 4 points again like she did Wednesday.

Prediction: UConn 80, Notre Dame 69

Join me, and possibly Porter, starting at around 9:00. I swear it's pretty much the last women's basketball game you need to pay attention to until late February.
