Huth: Expect Huskies to cut nets next year, too

Huth: Expect Huskies to cut nets next year, too

Beat writer and AP poll voter Jeff Huth’s way-too-early Top 10 for 2013-14

1. Connecticut
Huskies return a dynamic duo in Wade Trophy finalists Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis and Stefanie Dolson, and more.

2. Duke
Elite Eight Blue Devils get injured All-American Chelsea Gray back, add three McDonald’s All-Americans.
3. Stanford
Expect an experienced Cardinal team to be motivated by end of five straight trips to Final Four.

4. Louisville
Non-seniors fueled the Cinderella Cardinals’ remarkable run to the NCAA championship game.
5. Notre Dame
Skylar Diggins is irreplaceable, but Irish welcome back all but two players from Final Four team.

6. Tennessee
Elite Eight run showed Lady Vols are in good coaching hands with Pat Summitt successor Holly Warlick.
7. Baylor
Will be interesting to see whether Kim Mulkey’s Bears have staying power in a post-Brittney Griner era.

8. Kentucky
Losing two-time SEC Player of Year A’dia Mathies is a blow, but bulk of Elite Eight qualifier is back.
9. California
Bears have holes to fill, but second-year coach Lindsay Gottlieb has program on firm ground.

10. Oklahoma
Injury wave couldn’t keep Sooners from Sweet 16. Future bright with likes of All-American sharpshooter Aaryn Ellenberg.

Jeff, how was the volleyball games on 4/6? I haven't seen any mention anywhere. Apologies for posting this at an inappropriate site.
