MANSFIELD, Connecticut — UConn has not had seven first-year players on its roster since back in 1988, the year the Huskies won the first of their 18 Big East titles.  

Connecticut returns this season to the league it helped build with a young, but talented team after playing seven years in the American Athletic Conference without a conference loss. 

The Huskies did lose star Megan Walker in the offseason. She entered the WNBA a year earlier than expected. 

That leaves UConn with no seniors, four returning players, six freshmen, and Evina Westbrook, who sat out last year after transferring from Tennessee. 

On November 19, SNY announced it will exclusively be airing 18 of the UConn women's basketball team's games. The play-by-play announcer will be Allem Bestwick, returning for his second season. He will be joined by former UConn Husky Meghan Culmo and Maria Marino will return as the live game reporter and will contribute to the studio programs.
