UConn picked second in AP poll

There were few surprises at the top of the first Associated Press poll of the season as defending national champion Baylor will start the season at No. 1 and UConn comes in at No. 2.

The Huskies return four starters and eight of the top nine scorers from last year's team which won the Big East tournament title and advanced to the Final Four. UConn also brought in the nation's No. 1 recruiting class.

"I think it's great to be picked at the top of the polls," UConn coach Geno Auriemma. "That's something I think every kid that comes here takes for granted. I'm happy we are (ranked second). I'm happy for our kids and proud of our program."

UConn kicks off its exhibition schedule Friday against Division II Indiana (Pa.)

Received word about 90 minutes ago that the planned press conference Geno Auriemma was supposed to be a part of in conjunction with UConn's school of business due to the impending storm. There's no new date for the press conference at the current time.

Motivation, Motivation does Geno and UConn women need more??
It's not where you start the season it's what championships you have.

Not precise quotes from Geno, but close.
