The Connecticut Huskies are the defending national champions and they do not seem to be experiencing any type of championship hangover throughout their first eight games of the regular season. They come into this game with seven victories, their first eight games of the year and they will be looking to make an eight out of nine with another quality performance here on Tuesday night in New York City against North Carolina. They return much of the same roster from last season so they do have a legitimate chance to repeat as national champions this year, as long as the chips fall in the right direction for Connecticut.
This would be a massive résumé building victory with only a month ago before they head into conference play in one of the toughest conferences in the country this season. They should be favored in the biggies this season, but they will have plenty of competition from the likes of Creighton, Seton Hall, Villanova, Marquette, and Providence throughout conference play. Connecticut will be looking to bounce back from their four-point loss to Kansas and their previous game as they look for their eighth victory of the season and a victory over a top 10 team in the country to add to their résumé early on in the year. Connecticut also has a couple of victories against Texas and Indiana this season, and they will be looking for a third victory over a quality historic program here in this one.
