Coming off a blowout loss to conference rival, the Louisville Cardinals, by a final score of 80-59, the 15-8 Connecticut Huskies are in desperate need of a statement victory before Selection Sunday. Today they're presented with a great opportunity to do just that against the second-ranked team in the country, the Syracuse Orange, who are 24-1 on the season and 11-1 in the Big East. The game will be played at the Carrier Dome in Syracuse, New York, where the Orange have not lost a game all season.
The Huskies will need a much better performance from stud freshman, Andre Drummond, who was held scoreless on six attempts in the team's loss to Louisville. Last time out was also only the second time all season Drummond was held without a blocked shot.
Game Date/Time: Saturday, February 11, 1 p.m. ET
Location: Carrier Dome, Syracuse, NY
Radio: WTKW 99.5 FM
