Ready, set, travel

UConn's toughest opponent this season may be jet lag.

The defending national champions will be traveling all over the country.

The Huskies will head to California (Stanford), Oklahoma (Tulsa), Texas (SMU, Houston), Louisiana (Tulane), Florida (USF, Florida), Ohio (Cincinnati), Tennessee (Memphis), Pennsylvania (Temple) and North Carolina (East Carolina). They'll go to Puerto Rico (Puerto Rico Tip Off) and play Duke in New Jersey.
