(WTNH)–The UConn women’s basketball team is making the drive down to Bridgeport to face UCLA in the Sweet 16 on Saturday. The Huskies are coming off of a win over Syracuse, whom they beat in the national title game last year.
Kia Nurse was huge in their second-round win over the ‘Cuse, knocking down nine threes. Before that, UConn scored 116 points in a win over Albany in the first round, and the game before that, Katie Lou Samuelson hit 10 threes in a win over South Florida in the AAC championship.
So, is it possible that the Huskies are peaking?
“Hope so. I think that we want to be playing our best basketball at this time of year and that’s what we’ve been kind of building up to,” said Samuelson. “It’s a brand new season, so we can’t really get caught up in what we’ve done before. We’ve got to focus on playing one game at a time.”
The Huskies will take on the Bruins on Saturday at 2 p.m.
