ELMONT, NY (WFSB) - The University of Connecticut’s women’s basketball team plans to face off against St. Johns as scheduled on Wednesday and rescheduled a couple of games.

The team put out statements this week.

Its game against St. John’s is slated to start at 8 p.m. Wednesday at the UBS Arena in Elmont, NY. The game will be broadcast on SNY.

The 4th-ranked Huskies were forced to postpone Sunday’s game against DePaul because they didn’t have enough healthy players on the roster. They needed a minimum of seven available scholarship student-athletes.

At the time, Aaliyah Edwards and Ayanna Patterson were injured in the Huskies’ game against Xavier on Thursday, UConn said.

Caroline Ducharme, Azzi Fudd, Paige Bueckers and Ice Brady were already inactive for the Huskies.

Fans with tickets to the DePaul game will be able to use them for the rescheduled matchup. UConn said the game will be played on Monday, Jan. 23 at 7 p.m. The venue will be Gampel Pavilion.

Additionally, UConn announced that its game at Seton Hall was rescheduled to Tuesday, Jan. 17. That game had been previously scheduled for Jan. 19. It was moved to alleviate schedule congestion.

The team’s game against top-ranked South Carolina was sold out. UConn called it a white out. Fans were encouraged to wear white to the game.

That game is slated to tip off at noon Sunday, Feb. 5, at the XL Center in Hartford.
