UConn Will Host Washington on Dec. 29
UConn will host the University of Washington on Dec. 29 at either Gampel or the XL Center, then meet in a return match in the 2013-14 season out in Seattle. TV plans for the two games will be announced at a later date.
The Huskies (of Washington) are coached by Lorenzo Romar. They were this year's PAC-12 regular-season champs, though they didn't get an invite to the NCAA tourney. U-Dub wound up losing in overtime to Minnesota in the NIT semifinals, in case you weren't paying attention.
UConn is 3-0 all-time against Washington. All three games were on neutral sites: UConn's 75-74 win on March 19, 1998 in the NCAA East Regional semifinals in Greensboro, N.C. (on a Richard Hamilton buzzer-beater); a 69-48 win on Dec. 1, 1998 at the Great Eight Basketball Classic in Chicago; and a 98-92, overtime in in the Washington D.C. regional finals in at the Verizon Center on March 24, 2006.
