Tennessee vs. UConn women's basketball all-time history, results

UConn's Crystal Dangerfield is ready to make the most of her college career

The UConn and Tennessee women’s basketball programs have been powerhouses in the sport for years. UConn has won 11 national titles, the most in the sport. Tennessee is next with eight.

Their dominance has created an intense rivalry. The teams had not played each other since the 2006-07 season until their January 23, 2020 matchup. The Lady Vols won three-straight against the Huskies from 2005-07, but UConn won the most recent meeting. The schools first played in 1995 and UConn leads the series 14-9, including 5-2 in NCAA tournament games and 4-0 in national title games. Here's the all-time series history:
