Time announced for UConn's season opener

Florida State announced that the No. 14 game against four-time defending national champion UConn will be played at 6 p.m. and air on ESPN2.

UConn will be taking a 75-game winning streak into its regular-season opener which trails only UConn's NCAA record 90-win streak.

A national television audience will get to see UConn's first game (not counting a couple of exhibitions) without graduated All-Americans Breanna Stewart, Moriah Jefferson and Morgan Tuck.

Florida State, coming off a 25-8 season, returns seven of its top nine players including leading scorer Shakayla Thomas and star point guard Leticia Romero, currently a key member of Spain's Olympic team so the Seminoles figure to be ranked in the top 15 if not in the top 10 in the preseason polls.
