UConn may be rated No. 1 out of the gate, but it could be UConn field hockey's version of a rebuilding year. UConn lost 4 terrific senior starters, plus two undergraduate starters from overseas who did not return to the team. It will be interesting to see how things shake out for Nancy Stevens and company.
