The game is scheduled to begin at noon and will be televised by the CBS Sports Network.  

The Huskies (10-7 overall, 3-2 American) are coming off a 67-60 victory over UCF on Thursday at Gampel Pavilion, breaking a two-game slide.

UConn is led by senior Ryan Boatright, who tops the team in scoring (15.8), assists (4.8), and steals (1.6) and also grabs 4.3 rebounds per game.
