8 NCAA tournament teams part of UConn's non-conference schedule

There will be some familiar faces as well as some new ones as part of the UConn women's basketball team's non-conference schedule.
The highlights will be matchups with two teams who played in the 2015 Final Four as well as two first-time opponents.

The quest for an unprecedented fourth straight national title begins with Nov. 16 game at Ohio State. UConn will host the Notre Dame team it defeated in the last two national championship games on Dec. 5 in the Jimmy V Classic and will play at South Carolina on Feb. 8.

There is still one game yet to be finalized and there's a chance it could be a part of the Maggie Dixon Classic in late December.

Chattanooga, DePaul, Florida State, Louisiana State, Ohio State and Nebraska are other 2015 NCAA tournament teams on the schedule.
The Huskies will play Chattanooga and Colgate for the first time on Nov. 30 and Dec. 9 in two of the five true road games on the non-conference schedule, will host Kansas State and Nebraska for just the second time and due to a scheduling conflict, will not play a regular-season game against Stanford for the first time since the 2006-07 season.

Since UConn is not playing in an exempt tournament, UConn will only play 29 regular-season games.
