The college rivalry of UConn vs. Rutgers in the Big East had many notable games. It continues in the WNBA with New York's roster led by four former Rutgers standouts - three of which are top scorers - and Connecticut's roster fortified with five former Huskies, including their top three scorers. Connecticut has parlayed the home flavor with a 6-0 record at home, and are tough to take down here. UConn won the bulk of those wars, and the rosters are set to do battle again here. Connecticut held the edge then, and this team holds the edge now. Take Connecticut in this one.
