Settting the stage for UConn/Baylor

Both teams are out on the court as tip is about an hour away.

I wasn't at shootaround this afternoon but heard that the Huskies were pretty loose and in a good frame of mind.

I believe UConn is going to try to put just one person on Baylor's national player of the year candidate and try to limit the impact of the other players. It won't be easy. Sophomore guard Odyssey Sims can be electric, Brooklyn Pope is a dynamic offensive rebounder and forgetting about Kimetria Hayden, Jordan Madden and Destiny Williams would be a mistake.

"A lot of people focus on her and forget about the other players," UConn junior forward Kelly Faris said. "You have to do both, you have to cover it all. There is not one way. Can you let her get that and guard the rest of them or we'll focus on her and not guard the rest of them, I think we are going to do our best to cover everything."

On the other end, Baylor has to guard UConn as well. If Stefanie Dolson is able to play a full game, UConn will have scorers at every position which could put the Lady Bears in some tough spots.
