NEW YORK (AP) Geno Auriemma and his UConn Huskies are used to being picked to win.
It's no surprise with three starters returning, including AP Player of the Year Breanna Stewart, that the team was the unanimous choice to win the American Athletic Conference again. In the past 20 seasons since UConn started winning championships, the Huskies haven't been picked as champs only a few times.
The Huskies received 10 first-place votes Thursday, with South Florida picking up the other when the preseason poll was released by the conference. Coaches aren't allowed to vote for their own teams.
