Three Huskies on Naismith watch list

The Atlanta Tipoff Club just released the players on the Naismith early season watch list and the list includes the UConn trio of senior guard Tiffany Hayes, sophomore center Stefanie Dolson and sophomore guard Bria Hartley.

UConn joins Notre Dame (Skylar Diggins, Natalie Novosel, Devereaux Peters) and Tennessee (Shekinna Stricklen, Glory Johnson and Meighan Simmons) as the only schools with three candidates. Da'Shena Stevens, a senior forward at St. John's and former Trinity Catholic star, is the only Connecticut native on the list.

The list will be cut to 30 by late February and in March the four finalists will be placed on the final ballot. The winner of the Naismith Trophy will be announced during the Final Four.
