The UW Schedule

The Huskies face 11 teams that played in the postseason last year, seven in the NCAA Tournament, including none other than defending national champion Connecticut in the home opener Nov. 24. Four Pac-10 teams advanced to the NCAA Tournament in 2000 and four opponents played in the WNIT, including national semi-finalist Colorado State. Washington opens its season on the road, at Indiana, in the first game between the two schools since 1982. The roadtrip continues to Michigan, against a Wolverine team that played in the first round of the NCAAs. The Huskies then return home for the grand opening of Bank of America Arena when they host the Connecticut Huskies in a nationally televised game on Fox Sports Net at 9 p.m.,Nov. 24.
