UConn overwhelming No. 1 team in coaches poll

The preseason coaches' poll was released today and to nobody's surprise UConn was the runaway No. 1 team.

UConn received 31 of the 32 first-place votes (the other one went to Tennessee) to earn the top spot. Duke, Stanford, Tennessee and Louisville rounded out the top five.

UConn plays six of the top 10 teams this season
2. Duke (Dec. 17)
3. Stanford (Nov. 11)
5. Louisville (Feb. 9 & Mar. 3)
6. Maryland (Nov. 15)
9. California (Dec. 22)
10. Baylor (Jan. 13)

UConn returns its top three scorers (Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis, Breanna Stewart and Stefanie Dolson) and seven of the top eight scorers from a team which went 35-4 and won the program's eighth national title.

The Huskies kick off the preseason with a game against Division II Gannon on Friday at Gampel Pavilion. The season opener is on Nov. 9 against Hartford.

The Associated Press preseason poll will be released on Friday.
