All the latest information and news on the Huskies’ 2020-21 schedule.
On Wednesday, UConn women’s basketball took the court for their first official practice of the 2020-21 season after an extended delay due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Their season has already been pushed back from Nov. 10 to Nov. 25 and all of their exhibition games have been eliminated as well. As a result of all the upheaval, the Huskies have yet to release their schedule, although it is beginning to take shape.
In an effort to keep UConn fans in-the-know over the coming weeks, we’ll use this page to provide scheduling updates as new information becomes available:
On Friday night, UConn women’s basketball released its non-conference opponents which features six matchups. The Huskies will open the season on Nov. 28 against Quinnipiac at Mohegan Sun.

Road: Baylor, Tennessee
Auriemma said last Wednesday that the Huskies will play Baylor and Tennessee but doesn’t “don’t know exactly what day.” In June, the Basketball Hall of Fame announced UConn would play the Lady Vols on Jan. 21, 2021 in Knoxville, Tennessee. It’s unclear if that has since changed.
Notre Dame postponed its yearly meeting with the Huskies earlier in the week.
Despite the announcement, UConn still has room to add another non-conference opponent to its schedule, per the JI’s Carl Adamec.
Big East schedule
Auriemma confirmed on Oct. 1 that the Big East will play a 20-game schedule beginning in December with a minimum of three to four games that month.
The conference has not made any official announcements yet and haven’t given a schedule to the teams, according to Auriemma. Under normal circumstances, the Big East plays conference games on Friday and Sundays.
