In the first ESPN/USA Today Coaches Poll of the season, the UConn Men’s Basketball team is ranked #14. Kansas is the top vote getter at number one. The rest of the top-5 are Michigaan State, Texas, North Carolina, and Kentucky.
Looking at the Preseason top-10, UConn has the chance to play 5 of the top 10 teams. With games already scheduled against Texas, Kentucky, Villanova, and West Virginia, plus the likely chance of playing Duke in the championship of the preseason NIT tournament, the Huskies will be playing the top teams this season.
The Huskies have less than a month until their first game when they play William & Mary on November 13th.
