With all due respect to Meyers, pitting UConn teams of different years against each other just seems a wrong approach to me because it forces us into a Sophie's Choice type situation with our favorite teams. But I have no such qualms about lining up teams by the number they wore because it not only makes perfect sense but it mixes players from different eras who generally aren't playing against younger or older versions of themselves. These teams have actually been going at it annually in a kind of Court of Dreams scenario (if you conceive it, they will mush their Husky teams on over). Here's how I would rate the full slate of 16 teams (at least 5 to a side) for the four rounds of the 2013 UConn Championship extravaganza. Note: you might be wondering why Sue Bird, Kara Wolters, Nykesha Sales, Ashja Jones, Breanna Stewart, Ann Strother, Lorin Dixon, Laura Lishness, and Peggy Walsh aren't on any teams. The truth is that though they were top players, they are frankly just terrible at recruiting for their teams, so they are still consigned to the 3 on 3 and 4 on 4 championships, which are not covered here. Some players also wore more than one number, and I have assigned them to the team where they are needed most. 23 And Me's Maya Moore, Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis, Kennitra Johnson, Rita Willians, Willnett Crockett Summary: After losing Swin Cash to a needier team, I'm not sure if this team has the required firepower ................ to beat many of the other teams by more than 40. Shooting gallery time. 33 Double Treys Barbara Turner, Shea Ralph, Jamelle Elliott, Meghan Pattyson, Marlene Stager Summary: Not sure if this team will actually be shooting many threes, but let's just say it is packed with grit and grind. 3's a Crowd Diana Taurasi, Tiffany Hayes, Morgan Tuck, Tammy Arnold, Shea Matlock. Summary: DT will have her work cut out for her leading her undermanned team to the UC, though fortunately 3's a Crowd does no longer have to play in the 4 on 4 league since Tuck joined the team this year. Still a little thin in the post, but DT and Tiff will be shooting from half court and daring the other teams to follow them out there. 31 Dazed Wendy Davis, Carla Berube, Stef Dolson, Tina Charles, Jessica Moore Summary: A nicely balanced team with a evil-looking frontcourt of Tina, Stef, and JMo and then Wendy and Carla to bring it up, this team has major punch. 50 Nifties Rebecca Lobo, Renee Najarian, Leigh Curl, Marissa Jaye, Darlene Hedges Summary: Three of the old-time great rebounders in Lobo, Najarian, and Curl also have a powerful scoring potential. 32 Degrees to Freeze Kalana Greene, Swin Cash, Pam Webber, Kris Lamb, Courtney Gaine Summary: The Cash machine coupled up with the Greene Monster in the paint and Pam and Kris icing them from the outside gives this group a chilling effect. 24 Hours to Go Kerry Bascom, Charde Houston, Shelly Clymer, Mary Neubert, Beth Conrad Summary: Kerry's used to her team being the underdog and has thrived on that. Sic'em. 25 Toppers Mel Thomas, Svetlana Abrosimova, Michala Johnson, Brenda Marquis, Jennifer Weideman Summary: Sveta will be trying to do everything while Mel will be taking a dive ..... after the ball. 20 Somethings Renee Montgomery, Sandra Gavin, Stacey Hansmeyer, Morgan Valley, Colleen Healy Summary: Renee has her team on the run, Morgan picks the other squads to pieces, and Bam-Bam provides the beat. 34 Faris and Company Kelly Faris, Tamika Williams, Kelly Hunt, Stacey Wetzel, Daphne Roper Summary: This team could be a little more focused on the defensive side, but no one shoots more accurately than Tamika, and Kelly will lock on to the other team's star. 11th Heaven Ketia Swanier, Debbie Baer, Kelly Schumacher, Samarie Walker, Krista Blomquist Summary: They got the roadrunner speed from Ketia and Schuie is in 2000 NC block mode as she seeks revenge on all her ex-teammates who used to ask her about the weather up there (actually, they meant Canada), but scoring will still be on the light side though Debbie is always eager to dish. 22 Skidoos Ashley Battle, Amy Duran, Tammi Sweet, Jill Brumbaugh, Heidi Law Summary: The Battle Bot will always be in attack mode, but the key here will be to get Amy to the FT line so that the penalty shot artist can keep them in the game. 14 Spirit Bria Hartley, Tonya Boone, Meghan Gardler (needed here), Lori Kulo, Keirsten Walters Summary: Bria will get them in drive mode and Meghan will deck the ref in the first minute of play to set up some spirited action. 41 Primes Kiah Stokes, Cathy Bochain, Kaili McLaren, Paige Sauer, Susan Sturman Summary: Maybe not a glitz group but still a team with some oomph, and you have a lot of pick potential here. 44 Magnums Chris Gedney, Sarah Northway, Brittany Hunter, Christine Rigby, Sue Mayo Summary: Perhaps not the most mobile squad, but the Big Rig and Hunter give it some muscle and Chris is a scorer even if she never had the chance to shoot the 3. 12th Fright Stacey Marron, Nicole Woodall, Barbara Carter, Lauren Engeln, Marci Glenney Summary: Okay, they're not really that frightful, but you know they'll be a bunch of underdogs playing like the Dirty Dozen and Stacey will no longer just be called in for the last few minutes to shoot a bomb.
