Point guard matchup could be special in UConn/Notre Dame game

In a perfect world the fans coming to Gampel Pavilion would get to see Breanna Stewart squaring off with Notre Dame's Brianna Turner. However, a shoulder injury will keep Turner out of action.

Still, there is a must-see matchup featuring point guards Moriah Jefferson of UConn and Lindsay Allen of Notre Dame.

"She is a really good player and she is looking for her shot a lot more this year so it is going to be a challenge for me," Jefferson said.

"Anytime you are playing against really good guards, you want to come out and hold your own. She is going to come there really scrappy on defense. It is about being tough with the ball."

Allen is perhaps the only player on the Notre Dame with the same role she had a season ago and she will be front and center at today's game.

"I think she should get a little bit more attention," Notre Dame coach Muffet McGraw said. "I think she is one of the best point guards in the country. She is not somebody who scored a lot for us last year but this year she is going to have to."

There is a live blog up and running for today's UConn/Notre Dame. Feel free to check it out
