The Univerisity of Connecticut Lady Huskies take on the No. 20 California Bears in their home opener at the Gampel Pavilion on Friday.
The Huskies are led by Crystal Dangerfield, who notched a career-high 24 points over Stanford on Sunday. Katie Lou Samuelson also poured in 21 points in 31 minutes on Sunday.
It will be a special home opener for UConn as they honor Huskies great Rebecca Lobo, who was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Hall of Fame in September.
UConn is 31-1 in home openers under Geno Auriemma. The Bears will look to taint that record, but they will be without G Mi'Cole Cayton, who is out with a season-ending knee injury she sustained in their first game last week.
