Preason AAC Player Honors

Four Huskies earned American Athletic Conference Preseason Accolades as announced by the league during Media Day, which was held at Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, CT. UConn All-American candidate So. F Breanna Stewart was honored as the 2013-14 Preseason AAC Player of the Year while UConn All-Americans Sr. C Stefanie Dolson and Jr. W Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis joined Stewart on the Preseason All-Conference First Team. Stewart, Dolson, and Louisville Sr. G Shoni Schimmel were unanimous selections. For some unbeknownst reason, Mosqueda-Lewis was not picked by every coach even though she was unanimously selected as a 2012-13 All-Big East First Team member last season after leading the COUNTRY in 3pt FG percentage (a UConn single-season record 118 3pt. FG's made on 50%). Now I can't wait for the AAC season!!! Because you know KML is goin "lights out" on those dumb coaches' ass-ets. UConn All-American Sr. G Bria Hartley earned Honorable Mention status.
