Game Thread: #7/8 Texas A&M Takes on #2 Connecticut in the Women's Jimmy V Classic, 7 p.m. ET, ESPN2

Who: The UConn Huskies put their 90-game home win streak on the line against the defending-champion Texas A&M Aggies.

Where: XL Center | Hartford, Conn. | 7 p.m. ET | TV: ESPN2 | Online: ESPN3

The Story: Connecticut is entering the game with a 7-0 record, and even received two first-place votes in the latest USA Today Coaches Poll, released today. The Huskies have a NCAA-record 90-game home win streak on the line and this contest poses the second serious threat of the season to the streak. UConn took care of visiting Stanford 68-58 on Nov. 21.

The Aggies travel to Hartford boasting a 6-1 record and seventh place ranking by the coaches, eighth in the AP. Texas A&M's lone loss came at the hands of Purdue just two days ago. A&M shot a dismal 28.3% in the 60-51 loss, including making just 4-of-24 field goal attempts in the second half.

The Jimmy V Classic also features two men's games tonight at Madison Square Garden as Missouri faces Villanova and Washington squares off with Marquette on ESPN. All three of these contests are presented by the V Foundation in efforts to raise money and awareness for cancer research.
