Where Will UConn Go? A Look Ahead To The NCAA Women's Bracket

Could Tennessee beat UConn in Nashville in their first meeting since Pat Summitt pulled the plug on the series in 2007? Unlikely, but very intriguing to consider.

Remember The Big East?

To those who believed there weren't great basketball programs at the top of the old Big East, here is the proof: The AAC coach of the year was Auriemma. The ACC coach of the year is Notre Dame's Muffet McGraw. The Big 12 coach of the year is West Virginia's Mike Carey. The Big East coach of the year is DePaul's Doug Bruno, whose program won the tournament title with a win over St. John's.

Unparalleled Stewart

Breanna Stewart, the AAC player of the year and outstanding player in the conference tournament, is on a major roll and certainly the one who most distinguishes UConn from the rest of the teams.

Despite playing in only five NCAA games last season (she missed the opening-round romp over Idaho with an injury) she set a UConn program record with 105 points on her way to being the Final four most outstanding player.

She comes enters this tournament with five straight games scoring 20 or more points.

The Last Word

"Things don't last forever. The object I think is to put yourself in a position where you can win, and at some point you will. … We're not the only team that's standing in any team's way."

— Geno Auriemma
