The University of Connecticut women's basketball team will take on the Duquesne Dukes in Toronto on Friday night at 7 p.m.
Senior guard Kia Nurse should fit right at home in Toronto as she is from Hamilton, Ontario -- a mere 40 miles from the site of tonight's contest. Nurse is currently leading all of Division I players with a 54.3 3-point percentage this season.
Head coach Geno Auriemma, who notched his 1,000th win against Oklahoma last time out, will look to keep his winning streak going.
UConn is expected to finally have their full roster healthy tonight. Katie Lou Samuelson is back in the lineup after missing four games following a rolled ankle against Notre Dame. Megan Walker, who missed the Oklahoma game with flu-like symptoms, will also be back in for the Huskies.
The Dukes made it to the NCAA Tournament last season, but lost to the Huskies to get knocked out. They are winners of eight games in a row up to this point.
