UConn comes into the season off a loss, an unusual position after a 111-game winning streak.

The Huskies also are ranked No. 1 in the nation again, not so unusual.

UConn return a team that will start an unprecedented three preseason All-Americans in Napheesa Collier, Katie Lou Samuelson and Gabby Williams.

They also have added former Kentucky forward Batouly Camara and 6-foot-6 Azura Stevens from Duke, both of whom sat out last season after transferring.

Coach Geno Auriemma says he believes Stevens can score 25 points a game if her teammates get her the ball.

The Huskies open the season Sunday against No. 10 Stanford, having not lost two games in a row since the 1992-93 season, a span of 886 games.
