STORY LINES
CENTURY MARK:
Faris needs two 3-pointers to reach 100 in her career. That would give the Huskies four players with 100 career 3-pointers on the same team for the first time. Hartley (152), Mosqueda-Lewis (149), and Doty (132) have already reached the mark.
SUCCESS STORY: UConn coach Geno Auriemma has endured 130 losses in 27-plus seasons at UConn. No opposing coach has had more success against the Hall of Famer than Villanova coach Harry Perretta, who has earned 11 wins in 46 meetings.
CATCHING UP: Doty and Carey are friends and former teammates at the high school (Germantown Academy) and AAU levels (Fencor). This will be the final time in their career that they will meet in a regular-season game.
