CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) - Chattanooga will host defending national champion Connecticut on Nov. 30 as part of its 2015-16 women’s basketball schedule.

The Mocs released their schedule Tuesday.

Connecticut coach Geno Auriemma and Chattanooga coach Jim Foster have a long friendship that dates to when Auriemma began his career as an assistant on Foster’s staff at St. Joseph’s.

This will mark the second time Chattanooga has hosted a reigning national champion. Tennessee won 66-63 at Chattanooga during the 2008-09 season after winning the 2008 title.

Chattanooga’s 2015-16 schedule also features games at Tennessee on Nov. 23 and at Stanford on Dec. 28.

Chattanooga went 29-4 and earned a third straight NCAA tournament berth last season. The Mocs’ season included home victories over Tennessee and Stanford when both were ranked in the top 10.
