Tomorrow's game is still going on as scheduled

Normally a visiting team like DePaul would arrive in Connecticut at some point today for a Sunday afternoon game. However, with Bradley Airport still shut down due to the blizzard, there was the need for Plan B.

However, I just heard from DePaul women's basketball SID Alicia Powers Pope and she said the team will be flying in from Chicago tomorrow morning and should arrive in plenty of time since tip off isn't until 3:35 p.m.

UConn released a statement reaffirming that the game will be played as scheduled

The University of Connecticut vs. DePaul women’s basketball will be played as scheduled tomorrow (Sunday, Feb. 9) at Gampel Pavilion in Storrs. The game will tip off the scheduled time of 3:30 p.m.
Parking will be available in both the North and South Parking garages as usual. The University has cleared the majority of the snow from the surface lots used for gameday parking and has also cleaned up sidewalks and other pedestrian ways around Gampel Pavilion.
We do encourage all tickets holders to use extra precaution when driving to the game. In addition, please consider arriving early on campus for the game as the snow will have some effect on the amount of time it takes to drive on the local roads around campus and park.
Most local restaurants are open in the area, including the Food Court at the Student Union for pregame dining.
The game will be televised on ESPNU and heard on the UConn IMG Sports Radio Network.
Thank you,
UConn Division of Athletics
