UConn-Notre Dame women’s basketball game postponed a year

For the first time in seven years, the UConn and Notre Dame women’s basketball teams won’t play in the regular season.

The schools announced Monday that the game was postponed because the Irish need to restructure their schedule due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The perennial powers and former conference rivals extended their series last year through the 2023-24 season. That has been pushed back a year, with UConn hosting games next season and in 2023-24. The Irish will host the games in the other two years.

UConn coach Geno Auriemma said last week on a zoom call that he anticipated UConn playing all of its marquee non-conference games that included Baylor, Notre Dame, South Carolina and Tennessee. None of those games had been officially confirmed yet, as conferences are still trying to figure out their schedules.

It’s a relationship milestone they’ll never forget. As the coronavirus forced the cancellation of large social gatherings, many couples made adjustments—from Zoom weddings to miniaturized, socially-distanced ceremonies—while others, who delayed their nuptials until next year or beyond,
