COLUMBUS, Ohio - The University of Connecticut women's basketball team has not dropped a season opener in 20 years, part of the reason it has not lost back-to-back games since March of 1993.
A year ago, the Huskies made their debut with a 46-game winning streak and after Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis buried 10 3-pointers on UC Davis it seemed like they had picked up where they had left off. But two days later they were beaten by Stanford in overtime and an emotional All-American Breanna Stewart stated they had to change to reach their goals.
That change didn't end after UConn won its final 37 games and its third straight national championship last April. The lessons learned continued into this preseason and the top-ranked Huskies plan to take those with them Monday when they visit No. 6 Ohio State at Value City Arena here.
