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

We picked the all-time starting 5 for UConn women's basketball

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 Lady Vols won three straight against the Huskies from 2005-07, but UConn has taken the most recent two. The schools first played in 1995 and UConn leads the series 15-9, including 5-2 in NCAA tournament games and 4-0 in national title games. In the latest meeting, UConn rallied to beat the Lady Vols 67-61 on Jan. 21, 2021.
