FINALLY: For the first time in 14 seasons as head coach at Hartford, former UConn All-American Jennifer Rizzotti will face the Huskies in a true home game. She is also looking for the program's first win against her alma mater. UConn is 12-0 all-time against the Hawks.
REMEMBRANCE: The Hawks will honor the 26 victims of the Sandy Hook tragedy. They will welcome members of the Newtown Youth Girls' Basketball Association and their families to the game, and they will join players from both teams on the court for a moment of silence and singing of the national anthem.
CHANGE OF VENUE: This will be UConn's first in-state road game since a 60-58 win at Fairfield on Dec. 10, 1991.
POINTS RACE: Stewart needs 24 points to become the highest scoring freshman in team history after 10 games. Maya Moore scored 165 points in 2007-08.
