SNY to air Senior Day festivities live

Since I have been getting asked about this, I checked with UConn and have been told that SNY intends to air the Senior Day ceremony before the Feb. 27 game against Tulane live and in its entirety.

It will actually not be the final home game for either Moriah Jefferson or Breanna Stewart (or Morgan Tuck if she opts not to take advantage of a fifth season of eligibility) with USF coming to Gampel Pavilion on Feb. 29 in the regular-season finale.

Both Stewart and Jefferson will have their numbers added to the Huskies of Honor since both have previously been named first-team WBCA All-Americans.

The ceremony should start somewhere around 12:30 p.m. with the game tipping a few minutes after 1.

Speaking of Jefferson, Stewart and Tuck, they were all among 20 players named to the Wooden Award Late Season Top 20

Stewart won the award last season and is the heavy favorite to make it two in a row.
