UConn venturing into new territory

This is truly one road trip that will be accompanied by a sense of the unknown.

The days of playing in familiar haunts as part of the conference schedule came to an end thanks to the ever-changing world of conference realignment. As a result the Huskies now play fellow American Athletic Conference teams in North Carolina, Texas and Tennessee.

UConn will leave for a two-game road trip tomorrow. First up will be the Huskies first trip to Tulsa and then on Monday the Huskies play at Tulane.

"We have been to New Orleans a bunch of times (for the Final Foue) but we obviously have never played there, we have practiced there," Auriemma said after Thursday's practice. "It will be a little familiar when we get there but in terms of what to expect game wise, it is like it has been for a number of years when we come in there is a curiosity factor there, they want to see us play, they heard about it. It is an opportunity for us to bring our game to a part of the country they haven't seen. I hope it is a huge crowd at both places, I hope it is sold out at both places. I hope the fans get to see Tulsa and Tulane and I hope they make a lot of new fans because of that. I'd like to come out of this trip 2-0 and feeling like we did a lot to help grow the game and help make our league better."
