No. 5 UConn vs. No. 10 NC State, previewed

UConn vs. NC State

The Huskies and Wolfpack last met earlier this spring in the 2022 Elite Eight. Yes, that one, the one that became an instant classic. 

If you don’t remember, here’s a refresher: The bid for the Final Four went into double overtime for the first time in tournament history, Paige Bueckers and Jakia Brown-Turner went blow-for-blow hitting clutch shots, and UConn finished off the Wolfpack 91-87 to advance to its 14 consecutive Final Four. 

Almost seven months removed, they’ll face off again in Connecticut, but both teams will look different than their respective Elite Eight squads. UConn will be without star guard Bueckers after a torn ACL ended her season in August. On top of that, the Huskies will also be without Caroline Ducharme and Dorka Juhasz.

Last season’s Wolfpack was a veteran team with three graduate starters and one senior. Only Brown-Turner remains from that lineup, but still NC State retains a fairly experienced group. 

The Wolfpack are 4-0. The Huskies are 2-0, most recently defeating No. 3 Texas in an early statement win. Azzi Fudd, as a freshman, was good but not great last season. Now she’s a revelation. Fudd had a career-high 36 points in the victory over Texas.
