And there off to... Italia!!!!!!
The new look Huskies left today for their 10-day European Tour. They will play four games and do lots of sightseeing around Italy. Good luck and safe travels, girls (and guys)!!!! The one negative: Doty will continue to practice (as she recovers from knee surgery/recent knee sprain), but won't play in any of the games.
UConn will open the competition portion of their trip Thursday against the Dutch National Team in Rome (1:30 p.m. EDT). The Huskies will also meet the Italian Select team in Rome Friday (1:30 p.m.); the Saarlouis Royales in Florence Aug. 22 (noon); and the Nigeria National Team in Como Aug. 24 (TBA).
