Game Preview

On Monday, UConn earned its first unanimous No. 1 ranking in program history. A day later, the Huskies sustained their first loss in two months.

Looking to avoid consecutive defeats for the first time in more than a year, the Huskies host ascending Villanova on Saturday night in Storrs, Conn.

With two weeks to go, the Huskies (24-3, 14-2 Big East) hold a 2-1/2 game lead over Marquette in the race for the league’s regular-season title and top seed at the conference tournament. The Huskies are No. 1 for the sixth straight week and had extended their winning streak to 14 games with a 28-point dismantling of Marquette a week ago in Hartford.
