UConn women’s basketball’s full 2021-22 schedule — including tip times, locations and television info — is officially out.
The Huskies will play 31 games in total, 18 of which will be aired on SNY. They will also play three games on ESPN networks, two Big East games on Fox, two games on CBS Sports Network, one game on FS1 and one game on ABC. The Battle 4 Atlantis tournament will be streamed on Flo Hoops, while the Big East Tournament will be broadcast on FS1 and FS2.
Fans are expected to be allowed back this season, though face coverings will be required at Gampel Pavilion and the XL Center, regardless of vaccination status, unless actively eating or drinking.
UConn will open the season at the XL Center against Arkansas at 1 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 14 and will begin Big East play at Seton Hall on Friday, Dec. 3. The Huskies will play each conference opponent twice — once home and once away — in a double-round robin format.
Notre Dame will be UConn’s only non-conference meeting at Gampel Pavilion, though they’ll play six other games on-campus against Fort Hays State (exhibition), Creighton, Seton Hall, Butler, DePaul and Providence.
The Huskies will play seven games at the XL Center: Arkansas and Tennessee in non-conference play, and Marquette, Xavier, Villanova, Georgetown and St. John’s during the Big East schedule.
On the road, UConn will play each Big East foe as well as at Georgia Tech (Dec. 9 on ESPN2), Oregon (Monday, Jan. 17, TV TBD) and South Carolina (Thursday, Jan. 27 on ESPN) on the road. The Huskies will also face Louisville in the Basketball Hall of Fame Women’s Showcase at Mohegan Sun on Sunday, Dec. 19.
UConn will play at home just three times in 2021 and three times in January of 2022 but will close the regular season by hosting seven of its final nine games.
One of the toughest stretches travel-wise will come in late January when the Huskies head to Butler on Wednesday, Jan. 12, return home against Xavier on Saturday, Jan. 15, fly out to Oregon for a Martin Luther King Jr. Day matchup on Monday, Jan. 17 and then host Seton Hall on Friday, Jan. 21.
UConn’s final game at the XL Center will be on Friday, Feb. 25 against St. John’s and the regular season will conclude with senior day on Sunday, Feb. 27 against Providence at Gampel Pavilion.
The Big East Tournament will be held from March 5-7 at Mohegan Sun Arena.
