NCAA Second Round: No. 3 Huskies Set To Host No. 6 Syracuse


The 2024 NCAA Women’s Basketball Championship Second Round will feature the third-seeded UConn Huskies (30-5) against the No. 6-seed Syracuse (25-7) on Monday at 6 p.m. at Gampel Pavilion. The matchup will be broadcasted on ESPN and the UConn Sports Network from Learfield (FOX Sports 97-9).

UConn continues its remarkable streak with its 35th consecutive appearance in the NCAA Tournament, having participated in every tournament since the 1988-89 season. With an impressive overall record of 133-23, the Huskies hold the title of the winningest program in NCAA Tournament history. This marks the third time in program history that UConn has been seeded third.

The Huskies boast an outstanding record of 30-2 in the NCAA Second Round and have secured victory in 29 consecutive Second Round matchups.

In the NCAA First Round, UConn secured a convincing 86-64 victory over Jackson State. Redshirt junior Paige Bueckers delivered a stellar performance with 28 points, 11 rebounds, seven assists, three steals, and no turnovers or fouls. Freshman Ashlynn Shade made an impressive debut, setting a personal best with 26 points. Additionally, senior Aaliyah Edwards, returning from injury, recorded a double-double with 20 points and 10 rebounds.

UConn and Syracuse share a rich history, particularly as former BIG EAST rivals. The Huskies hold a dominant 39-13 all-time record against the Orange, including a commanding 39-6 record under Coach Geno Auriemma. Their most recent encounter was in the 2021 NCAA Tournament Second Round, where UConn emerged victorious with freshmen Paige Bueckers and Aaliyah Edwards leading the charge.

Syracuse secured a hard-fought 74-69 victory over No. 11-seed Arizona in the NCAA First Round, with Dyaisha Fair leading the Orange with 32 points. Fair currently ranks eighth nationally with an average of 22.3 points per game. Head coach Felisha Legette-Jack, in her second season at Syracuse, leads her alma mater into this matchup.
