Report: UConn to Open '12-13 Season in Germany vs. Spartans

According to an ESPN report, UConn will open the 2012-13 season in Germany against Michigan State on Nov. 9 at Ramstein Air Base.

The Huskies, of course, have three German natives on their roster: junior Niels Giffey, sophomore Enosch Wolf and freshman Leon Tolksdorf. And Jim Calhoun will get a chance to play against his "dear, dear friend" Tom Izzo.

Sounds like a win-win for everyone involved.

Didn't they play each other in November 2010 during the Maui Invitational? Meaning that Calhoun won their most recent head-to-head. Same year that the Huskies won in 2011. I think Michigan State was ranked #2 at the time.

You are 100-percent right, and I've made the change on the blog. I guess since I wasn't sent to cover the Maui game, I blocked it out of my mind like it never happened ... lol
