- The one-day doubleheader will be played at the TD Banknorth Garden in Boston on Dec. 1.

- ESPN will televise the event nationally. Connecticut-Gonzaga will be televised on ESPN at 3:30 p.m. followed by Boston College-Providence at 6 p.m. on ESPN Classic.

- For UConn, the game will serve as the first of a neutral-neutral series with Gonzaga. In December, 2008, the Huskies will play the Bulldogs at Key Arena in Seattle.
