UConn women’s basketball Podcast: UConn women’s basketball, Paradise Jam preview

November 20, 2018 GMT

Ranked No. 2 in the country, the UConn women’s basketball team has two victories behind it as Geno Auriemma’s squad heads to the U.S. Virgin Islands for the Paradise Jam.

The Huskies face Mississippi on Thanksgiving before playing St. John’s and Purdue. And the warm-weather respite will provide a tune-up as UConn prepares for a showdown with No. 1 Notre Dame on Dec. 2.

Beat reporter Doug Bonjour will be with the Huskies at every stop and he talks on the last edition of the Hearst Connecticut Sports Podcast about his view of the program as he embarks on his first season covering the team. Bonjour also previews the Paradise Jam trip, talks about the roster, the contribution of freshmen, and Auriemma’s high standards.

Finally, Bonjour assesses the schedule as UConn seeks its 12th national championship.
