Consider that UConn had seven of their 10 players score double-figures.
Consider that it outscored Holy Family, the nation’s 12th-ranked Division II team, 61-12 in the second half.
Consider that seven players made at least one three-pointer and that UConn was 18 of 34 from beyond the stripe.
Consider that 34 of UConn’s 74 shots were threes, very Villanova of it, wouldn’t you say.
Consider that the Huskies scored 224 points in their two preseason games and Bria Hartley, their first-team All-American, didn’t even play.
Consider that 1,300 fans even bothered to come watch Wednesday night.
Consider how confidence manifests itself in some players as Brianna Banks scored 20 points and made all four of the threes she attempted.
Consider that Breanna Stewart missed two days of practice and then came out with 21 points in 25 minutes.
Consider how opponents are going to try and defend UConn’s high-low game, let alone their east-west attack.
It’s going to be a big season. I can tell you that.
