Free book talk Jan. 21 on the UConn-Tennessee women’s basketball rivalry

Fans of UConn women’s basketball won’t want to miss a book talk on Jan. 21, 2020 at the Tolland Public Library when sportswriter Jeff Goldberg will discuss “Unrivaled: UConn, Tennessee, and the Twelve Years that Transcended Women’s Basketball.”
The free talk, set for 7 p.m. at the library at 21 Tolland Green, comes just two days before the women’s teams resume their rivalry.
The teams met 22 times between 1995 and 2007, when Tennessee ended the series. The Huskies have won 11 national titles and the Lady Vols have won 8.
A native of West Hartford who now lives in San Diego, Goldberg was the UConn women’s basketball beat writer for the Hartford Courant from 2001 to 2006. Hs is also the author of “Bird at the Buzzer: UConn, Notre Dame, and Women’s Basketball Classic.”
Goldberg is now the editor of and was the team reporter for the San Diego Fleet in the Alliance of American Football in 2019. He previously covered the Boston Red Sox for the Courant as well.
Goldberg is returning to speak at the library as part of the Tolland Public Library Foundation’s Eaton-Dimock-King Authors Series.
Registration is required. Call the library at 860-871-3620 or sign up online at
