On Wednesday, the UConn men's team announced its 2012-13 schedule. A day later, the women did the same. Some games of note are highlighted below:
* Nov. 11, College of Charleston: It's the home opener, which means our first glimpse of freshmen Breanna Stewart, Morgan Tuck and Moriah Jefferson.
* Nov. 18, Texas A&M: The Aggies won the national title in 2011. This game will be nationally televised on ESPN2.
* Nov. 22, Wake Forest: it's the first round of the U.S. Virgin Islands Paradise Jam.
* In December, the Huskies face Maryland in the Jimmy V Classic, and travel west to face Stanford and Oregon.
* Big East play starts Jan. 5 against -- you guessed it -- Notre Dame.
* There's a break in the conference schedule in February when the Huskies host Baylor (Feb. 18).
* The Big East Tournament runs March 8-12.
