Here's UConn's 2016-17 schedule

UConn's 2016-17 schedule is out and since the non-conference slate was previously announced, there's not a heck of a lot of stuff to report here considering the way the Huskies have rolled past American Athletic Conference competition.

For those wondering, if UConn wins its first 14 games the Huskies would have a chance to tie their own NCAA Division I women's basketball record with their 90th win in a row against South Florida at the XL Center on Jan. 10. Those who are really optimistic could point to the Feb. 13 game against South Carolina as an opportunity to go for 100 straight wins.

The conference opener is on Jan. 1 against Central Florida and its new coaching staff includes former UConn star Nykesha Sales as a first-year assists coach.

Ending the regular season with games at Tulane, at home vs. Temple and at South Florida will be interesting because I would imagine that USF, Tulane and Temple are the three best AAC teams other than UConn.
