No Martin Luther King Day game for UConn

It was pretty much a foregone conclusion that on Martin Luther King Day that ESPN would televise a game featuring its women's basketball cash cow.

However, of the three games featuring ranked teams on today's schedule, not one of them involves UConn marking the first time since 1994 that the Huskies will not be playing a game on MLK Day.

It was not a development that was a major deal to UConn coach Geno Auriemma.

"It took to long to figure out what the schedule was going to be for this conference that I am not surprised," Auriemma said after Sunday's win over Rutgers. "Things happen, you can't really fault anybody for it. It is just one of those things so what are you going to do? We've played in it probably more than anybody else and it is somebody else's turn. I am sure we will back at same point."

The marquee women's game tonight is the showdown between Notre Dame and Tennessee which will air on ESPN2 at 7 p.m. tonight.
