Five Huskies on Naismith Award watch list

The Atlanta Tipoff Club just released the 50 candidates on the Naismith Award preseason watch list and to say that UConn was prominently represented would be an understatement of record proportions.

Five Huskies are on the list. Maybe my mind is playing tricks on me but I can not recall a time when five members of the same team made any preseason watch list.

On the list are senior guard/forward Kelly Faris, junior center Stefanie Dolson, junior guard Bria Hartley, sophomore guard/forward Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis and freshman forward Breanna Stewart.

Stewart is the only freshman on the list while the only other sophomore is Duke's Elizabeth Williams.

Here is the complete list
