UConn and Penn State agree to regular-season series

UConn and Penn State, which will meet in the Kingston Regional semifinals on Sunday, have just finalized a deal to play a home and home series beginning with a December game in Connecticut next season.

Penn State joins Baylor, Maryland, Duke, Stanford Oregon, Hartford, Texas A&M as well as a trip to the U.S. Virgin Islands for the Paradise Jam as part of UConn's non-conference schedule.

UConn is set to face eight teams in the Sweet 16 in the regular season next season including Big East rivals Notre Dame and St. John's.

UConn, Purdue, Wake Forest and DePaul have been announced as teams taking part in the Paradise Jam. There willl be eight teams in the event with the tournament splitting the field into two groups of four. Each team will play the others in their group once and the champion will be determined by record in the round-robin results. DePaul and UConn should be placed in opposite brackets since they are in the same conference. The tournament will be held from Nov. 22-24.
