Five Huskies Named To Naismith Early Season Watch List

UConn senior Kelly Faris, juniors Bria Hartley and Stefanie Dolson, sophomore Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis and freshman Breanna Stewart have been named to the 50-player Naismith women’s early season watch list, the Atlanta Tip-off Club announced today.

 The watch list was compiled by the Atlanta Tipoff Club’s Board of Selectors based on player performances from last season and expectations for this season. The Board of Selectors will compile a midseason list of the Top 30 players in late February. The Naismith Trophy voting academy will then vote to narrow the list to four finalists in March.

The Naismith Women’s College Player of the Year will be presented at the Final Four in New Orleans April 8.
