One year after being forced to sit out the NCAA Tournament, UConn finds itself back in the big dance . . .  to nobody's surprise.

The Huskies (26-8) earned a No. 7 seed and will play No. 10 St. Joseph's Thursday in Buffalo. If they win, they'll play the winner of No. 2 Villanova and No. 15 Milwaukee on Saturday.

The Huskies, led by senior guard Shabazz Napier all season, came up short in the American Athletic Conference's inaugural tournament, losing to Louisville Saturday night in the championship game.

They had beaten Cincinnati to advance to the conference final.
