The Huskies are one of five AAC teams -- tied for the most in the nation -- in the AP Poll.
The Huskies were 1-1 last week with a win over UCF on Sunday and a 63-58 loss to No 10. Cincinnati.
Cincinnati, coming off a loss to SMU, is the highest ranked AAC team.
Louisville is No. 13 and Memphis No. 20 while SMU is No. 23.
The AAC is a league of have and have nots this year. The bottom five conference teams in Temple, Houston, Rutgers, UCF and USF are all way down in the RPIs below 150. That's a problem for the the strength of schedule. UConn's RPI is 30, but its SOS is 63 with a conference SOS of 107. That's a problem from the Huskies if they don't win games against the lower half of the league with Wednesday's game against USF coming up at the XL Center. The Huskies host Memphis, SMU and Cincinnati and do play at Louisville to end the season, so there is ample opportunity to improve their RPI and subsequent NCAA seeding.
The AAC is tied with the Big 10 with five teams in the rankings. The ACC has four teams while the Big East has only two.
Syracuse, of course, is No. 1 and undefeated, though the ACC isn't as strong as initially anticipated.
