No. 16 DEPAUL at No. 2 UCONN WHEN: Wednesday, 7 p.m.WHERE: XL Center, HartfordRECORDS: DePaul (4-2); UConn (5-0)TV: SNY/ESPN3RADIO: 97-9 ESPNKEEP AN EYE ONONE FOR THE BOOKS: DePaul enjoyed a record-breaking performance in Monday’s 124-61 victory over Savannah State in Chicago. The Blue Demons hit a program-record 22 3-pointers on 41 attempts.“They’re like an NBA team,” UConn head coach Geno Auriemma said. “I was watching (Saturday’s 83-81 loss to Syracuse), they were 0 for their first 15. When you play teams like that, you don’t know what you’re getting. They could come out tomorrow and go 12-for-13. … When you get a team that’s going to shoot that many, you’re kind of at their mercy. This is not like, ‘Well, we’ve got to guard that kid and that kid.’ If they’re on the floor, you’ve got to guard them.”CAMARA SIDELINED: Batouly Camara’s hard luck continues. The 6-foot-2 forward hyperextended her right knee after stepping on a teammate’s foot during Monday’s practice and will need to undergo an MRI.“We’ll know more after (the MRI), but the kid’s snakebitten a little bit,” Auriemma said. “We’re hoping it’s nothing real serious.”Camara sat out the 2016-17 season per NCAA rules after transferring from Kentucky, then barely got on the floor last year. Hampered by an injury to the same knee, Camara missed the first seven games and averaged only 4.8 minutes per contest.“I don’t even know,” Camara said when asked about the nature of her injury.AT THEIR BEST AGAINST THE BEST: Over the last four seasons, UConn is 42-3 against ranked teams, with two of those losses coming in the Final Four to Mississippi State and Notre Dame in 2016-17 and 2017-18, respectively. The Huskies haven’t lost a regular-season game against a ranked opponent — or anyone else, for that matter — since then-No. 6 Stanford beat them 88-86 in overtime on Nov. 17, 2014.PROBABLE STARTERSDePAULPlayerPos.PPGAshton MillenderG12.8Kelly CampbellG7.4Sonya MorrisG6.8Chante StonewallF15.8Mart’e GraysF9.8UCONNPlayerPos.PPGCrystal DangerfieldG13.4Christyn WilliamsG10.0Katie Lou SamuelsonG19.4Megan WalkerF11.2Napheesa CollierF17.2— Doug Bonjour
