UConn/Dayton series is finalized

The last piece of UConn's 2016-17 non-conference schedule is in place as Dayton will play at UConn next season and then the teams will have a home and home series during the 2019-2020 and 2020-21 seasons. Which team gets the home game in '19-20 still has to be determined.

UConn and Dayton played a very entertaining regional final in March won by UConn 91-70 en route to the Huskies winning their 10th national title.

The Huskies will be playing eight teams currently ranked in the Associated Press top 25 in the non-conference portion of the schedule including games against No. 2 South Carolina, No. 3 Notre Dame, No. 4 Texas, No. 5 Ohio State, No. 6 Baylor and No. 8 Maryland.

Napheesa Collier is second on the Huskies with 74 rebounds which got me to thinking of where that ranks among freshmen this early in their careers.

I was able to go back to Svetlana Abrosimova's freshman season which the 1997-98 campaign and here's what I came up with for most rebounds by a UConn freshman through the first 12 games as tonight's game is the Huskies' 12th of the season

Tina Charles (06-07)   97
Breanna Stewart (12-13) 80
Maya Moore (07-08)  77
Napheesa Collier (15-16) 74
Swin Cash (98-99)  72
Tamika Williams (98-99) 66
