UConn ready for first game at East Carolina

UConn has faced Charlotte, Duke, North Carolina, North Carolina State and Wake Forest but today will make the first time UConn and East Carolina will be squaring off. It will also be the Huskies' 2014-15 American Athletic Conference road opener.

"New faces, new team," UConn sophomore forward . I haev never been to East Carolina and none of us really have, it is a new place and we are excited to get another conference game in."

East Carolina is off to a 9-3 start, dropping its AAC opener to South Florida.
"It is kind of similar to last year playing opponents we never played before, going to places we have never been before, it is going to be a new experience for both teams," UConn junior forward Breanna Stewart said.

Courtney Ekmark is in uniform and is available to play today.

Ekmark played 19 minutes in the season-opening win over UC Davis, she didn't score (missing both of her shots), had three rebounds and two assists. She was available to play against Stanford but never got into the game. She was diagnosed with a stress reaction in her right foot before the Nov. 23 Creighton game and the tentative date for her return was Jan. 1 so she is right on schedule.
