Geno Auriemma and the No. 2 ranked UConn women Huskies kick off their 2018-19 regular season play against Vanderbilt on Saturday night at the Mohegan Sun Arena at 6 p.m.
UConn played an exhibition game against Ohio State last Sunday, where they dominated to the tune of a 85-53 victory. This is the usual result for the Huskies, as they are normally the favorite in any game they play.
However, the Huskies still have that crushing loss in the National Championship game against Notre Dame just months ago still in the back of their heads. Auriemma noted that last season was one of the hardest years coaching over his extensive career, and he's looking to change that this season.
There will be obvious bumps along the road, but this is the first game of many for the Huskies looking for redemption this season.
UConn returns many key parts of last season like F Napheesa Collier, G Crystal Dangerfield, G/F Katie Lou Samuelson, and G/F Megan Walker. And rounding out that starting five is freshman G Christyn Williams, who Auriemma is looking to be a catalyst on both sides of the ball this season.
