UConn, Maryland to meet again early in 2013-14 season

While I do not have the exact date, Maryland coach Brenda Frese confirmed that next season's game against UConn will be the third game of the regular season which puts it into the middle of November.

"Obviously it should have tremendous buzz," Frese said. "To be able to play them at home, I expect our arena will be sold out and for us to play them a third time and to hopefully come back healthy and have a roster of 14. We hope that we can continue the series, that is why we did it. We felt like Connecticut has been the best team in the country consistently and to be able to play against them and compete against them is the next step for the program if you feel like you can get your team to that point."

The teams will look a little bit different as Tianna Hawkins is graduating for Maryland and Kelly Faris is one of the three seniors moving on at UConn. Still, both teams figure to be ranked in the top 10 and perhaps it could even be a top five showdown.

"It will be cool to play them, it is always good when we play Maryland," UConn sophomore forward and leading scorer Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis said. "It will be a good test to see where we are at and it will be good to see where we are at."
