With UCONN getting a homecoming game in Nevada for Gabby Williams next season, the non-conference opponents portion of UCONN's schedule has been set.

Home:
Cal
Louisville
Maryland
Notre Dame

Away:
DePaul
Nevada
Ohio State
South Carolina
Texas
UCLA

Neutral:
Duquesne(Toronto)
Michigan State(Eugene, OR)
Oklahoma(Mohegan Sun)

Is this tougher than this years non-conference schedule? Hmmmm...

Toronto? What event is that?

Eugene vs Mich State? I assume that must be some Nike invite thing?

Toronto is the homecoming game for Kia Nurse. UConn always tries to get a game for it's seniors close to their home. Nurse, I believe, is from Hamilton, Ont.

And yes, the game vs Mich St is part of a Nike event. http://www.uconnhuskies.com/sports/w-baskbl/spec-rel/012517aaa.html

Most, if not all teams try to schedule games close to a players' home. Last I knew, teams couldn't schedule single games in foreign countries like that, it always had to be part of an exempt event. Like Purdue couldn't just randomly schedule a single game in Puerto Rico vs Florida International even if they had someone from there. Teams with kids from that part of Canada traditionally scheduled Buffalo, Niagara or Canisius. I wonder if it has to be considered an exempted event or an exhibition or something. Interesting...

And thank you for that link about that event...pretty cool.

Last year I was told that they were trying to schedule an event to promote the Final Four that included Uconn. They were trying to get Stanford and Tennessee to round out the event. Having heard any follow up about it.
