STORRS -- Napheesa Collier and Katie Lou Samuelson had quite the introduction to Gampel Pavilion as freshmen. In their first regular season game, UConn played archrival Notre Dame in front of a sold-out crowd.
"That's one of the games I remember the crowd being crazy," Samuelson said. "One of the few games in my career I actually remember the crowd and that was definitely one of them, especially because it was one of the big games."
Collier didn't remember the game as much as her feelings leading up to it.
"I remember how nervous I was. Just being in this environment with our fans," she said. "Playing in Gampel, it was a lot."
