UConn second in national coaches poll

The USA Today Sports/ESPN preseason poll came out today and the results are nearly identical to the Associated Press poll.

Baylor was the unanimous No. 1 team followed by UConn, Duke, Stanford and Maryland. The same 11 teams top  both polls. The only changes are that Kentucky and Notre Dame flip flop at the No. 6/7 spots and the story is the same for Georgia and Delaware at the No. 10/11 spots.

Here is the complete poll
