TUCSON, Ariz. The men’s basketball programs at the University of Arizona and the University of Connecticut have agreed to a two-year home-and-home series, the schools announced Wednesday in a joint release.

The series will begin at McKale Center during the 2017-18 season with the Wildcats making the return trip to Connecticut the following year.

Arizona and UConn have faced each other five times on the hardwood, last meeting in an Elite Eight matchup in Anaheim in 2011 in which the Wildcats dropped a 65-63 thriller to the eventual national champions.
