Three members of the UConn Huskies women’s basketball team has been named to Wooden Award Preseason Top 30 watch list.
Annie Wickett wasn’t even on the 22-man travel squad for the UConn Huskies women’s soccer team in 2014. In fact, she only saw action in one game last year.
But according to UConn women’s soccer head coach Len Tsantiris, Wickett worked very hard in the offseason and earned the starting job at left back.
During the season, Wickett had a few opportunities to score but could never get one past the opposing goalkeeper. That changed on in Sunday’s 5-0 win over the Siena Saints in the first round of the NCAA Women’s Soccer Tournament when she scored on a shot from about 20 yards out.
After the game, Wickett along with her teammate Rachel Hill and Tsantiris talked about her first career goal.
Two of the above five are starters (Brimah, Purvis) on the 2015-16 UConn Huskies men’s basketball team. The other three, Calhoun, Facey and Nolan, will come off the bench this season.
During the UConn men’s basketball season opening win over Maine, their depth was apparent especially to Maine’s head coach Bob Walsh. He was impressed at the quality of the depth with veterans guys who have bought into the role.
Watch and/or listen below as Walsh along with UConn men’s basketball coach Kevin Ollie talk about UConn’s bench experience and depth.

The Ohio State Buckeyes women’s basketball team has some pretty good guards in Kelsey Mitchell and Ameryst Alston. Unfortunately for them, the UConn women’s basketball team has better guards in All-American Moriah Jefferson and Canada’s summer MVP Kia Nurse.
In their season-opening loss to South Carolina, Mitchell and Alston put up a combined 43 shots of the team’s 80 and finished with 36 and 23 points respectively. So it’ll be up to the UConn women’s basketball guard to slow them down and get them out of their rhythm.
