UConn picked to win conference

UConn was the popular pick at the annual Big East women's basketball media as the Huskies were unanimous selections to win the Big East title while senior forward Maya Moore was the preseason player of the year and guard Bria Hartley was named the presseason Freshman of the Year.

UConn, which is entering the season on a Division I women's basketball record 78-game winning streak, received the first-place vote from the other Big East coaches. Since he can not vote for his squad, UConn coach Geno Auriemma cast his ballot
for West Virginia.

Moore and UConn junior guard Tiffany Hayes were unanimous picks to the preseason all-conference team as were sophomores Skylar Diggins of Notre Dame and Sugar Rodgers of Georgetown.

West Virginia was picked to finish second followed by Georgetown, Notre Dame and St. John's.
