Quick thoughts on UConn’s schedule:
*New Year’s Eve in Houston this year. Slightly better than Milwaukee last season.
*The Huskies get Memphis and Louisville back-to-back on Jan. 16 and 18. Two of the season’s biggest games in three days.
*Plenty of TV exposure despite the conference affiliation. UConn gets 12 guaranteed games on either ESPN or ESPN2 and the season finale vs. Louisville on CBS.
*The non-conference, which we’ve known about for quite some time, is as good as it’ll get. Florida, Maryland, Stanford, Washington, B.C. and potentially Indiana should help boost UConn’s RPI.
*I’m not sure which game is in Bridgeport, but if I had to guess, I’d go with either Eastern Washington (Dec. 28).
