KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Tennessee and UConn, the two most storied programs in women’s college basketball, will continue to meet on the hardwood for at least the next two years, the schools announced on Friday.

The Lady Vols and Huskies will face each other during the 2021-22 and 2022-23 campaigns, with the teams playing in Connecticut this season, followed by a return to UT’s Thompson-Boling Arena the next year.

The squads met in Knoxville on Jan. 21, 2021, and in Hartford the year before on Jan. 23, 2020, as part of the two-year Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame Revival Series. The upcoming match-ups represent a new home and home agreement reached between the schools.

“We are excited to play these games and continue the overall series between these historic programs,” UT head coach Kellie Harper said. “We’ve had highly-competitive and entertaining games the past two seasons, and our players as well as our fans really enjoy the level of intensity and excitement that occurs when the Lady Vols and Huskies meet.”

Dates, tip times, broadcast information and the location for the 2021-22 match-up will be released when those details become available.
