COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) UConn and Louisville will host the U.S. Women's national basketball team in winter exhibition games in preparation for next year's Summer Olympics in Tokyo.

The fifth-ranked Huskies will host the national team Jan. 27 in Storrs, Connecticut, before the No. 9 Cardinals face the squad Feb. 2. Louisville coach Jeff Walz called the contest ''an unbelievable opportunity'' in a release Wednesday and added that it's an honor to host the game.

Four-time Olympic gold medalists Sue Bird and Diana Taurasi headline a national squad seeking its seventh consecutive gold medal. Former Louisville star Angel McCoughtry is part of the talent pool and could play against her alma mater.
