UConn, Stanford agree to extend series

By Carl Adamec

The University of Connecticut and Stanford women’s basketball teams have enjoyed a healthy rivalry since renewing it four years ago and will meet in what will potentially be a 1 vs. 2 game on Dec. 29 at Maples Pavilion.

It’s been so good that the schools have agreed to a new two-year contract starting in the 2013-14 season. According to a source, the Huskies will host the Cardinal for that season’s opener before making the trip to California in 2014-15.

The Dec. 29 game in Palo Alto is the final game of a two-year deal signed in 2010.
