UConn's 2015-16 roster is up

Before last season Briana Pulido gave up her No. 11 uniform number to freshman Kia Nurse and switched to No. 24 with no complaints. Well, as luck would have it, incoming freshman Napheesa Collier wore No. 24 in high school so Pulido is changing numbers once again. Pulido will wear No. 2 for the upcoming season.

Collier will wear No. 24, Katie Lou Samuelson was given No. 33 and De'Janae Boykin No. 35.

Here is a link to UConn's updated roster

STOKES MAKES FIRST CUT FOR NCAA WOMAN OF THE YEAR
Kiah Stokes, a member of three straight national titles as UConn, was one of 147 student-athletes to survive the first cut for the NCAA Woman of the Year Award.

Stokes is one of four players from Connecticut colleges on the list as University of New Haven sprinter Ivy Watts and Post University lacrosse standout Miranda Polaski and Western Connecticut volleyball and softball star Nina Wojtkiewicz also made the cut. The top 30 nominees will be announced on Oct. 18.


ALL-STAR PRACTICES OPEN TO PUBLIC
Tomorrow's practices for the WNBA All-Star game at Mohegan Sun Arena are open to the public.

The Eastern Conference is up first from 3-3:45 p.m. followed by the Western Conference from 4:15-5 p.m.

The practices are usually pretty entertaining as the head coaches are wired for sound and they tend to play to the crowd. There's also plenty of Connecticut connections as former UConn stars Tina Charles and Stefanie Dolson are on the Eastern Conference team along with the Connecticut Sun's Alex Bentley and Kelsey Bone while UConn legends Sue Bird and Maya Moore are members of the Western Conference team.

The game is set for Saturday at 3:30 p.m.
