The UConn women’s basketball team will now open the 2020-21 season against UMass-Lowell. The game announced on Thursday is scheduled for December. 12 in the Gampel Pavilion. Tipoff will be 1p. m. on SNY.

Interestingly, UMass-Lowell is coached by former University of Rhode Island star and NBA security guard Tom Garrick, who is married to UConn assistant Shea Ralph. The River Hawks, members of the America East Conference, are expected to end their season against Merrimack on Saturday.

The River Hawks also have a local talent: Denise Solis of Windsor, a 6-foot-1 forward who started all 31 games as a freshman in 2019-20.

The third-placed huskies are currently in a 14-day quarantine after a member of the program tested positive for COVID-19 in November. 23. The program has since reported one more positive case.

UMass-Lowell entered the league at 16:15 and 11: 5 last season and finished third. Like UConn, the River Hawks recently had to suspend their activities due to a positive coronavirus test.

FloSports will be the Big East’s new digital home for women’s basketball. Under a one-year contract announced on Thursday, up to 75 regular season games will be distributed on the subscription streaming site this season.

Our agreement with FloSports will enable an even wider distribution of our games and significant additional support for our student athletes and coaches.
