I know I know, it is dubious to take the first handful of games and to then project out to the season as a whole.

Nevertheless, some of these observations might be of interest to you!

UConn is averaging 75 points per game, almost eight less than last season. Giving up 51.5, or about 5 fewer points than last season.

Projecting over a 38 game season, UConn is blocking more shots (228 to 169), getting more steals (367 to 304), and committing fewer fouls (373 to 459) than last year.

Opponents are shooting at a slightly weaker percentage (.313 versus .342) than last year, and at about the same percentage from three point range. UConn is shooting a weaker percentage as well (.467 versus .491) but a slightly higher three point percentage (.374 versus .364).

UConn projects getting to the line about 150 fewer times than last year. Also projects to have 690 assists, versus 748 last year.

Megan Walker is on track to take 614 field goal attempts, about 250 more than she took last year and more than Collier took last year, 528. She also projects to get to the foul line 133 times, twice as many as she took last year but below Collier (188) and KLS (145) last season.

ONO is 11-14 from the line, or .786. Last season she was 50-94, or .532. Notably, she has 28 of the team`s 36 blocks, almost 80%.

Christyn is averaging 6 more points per game, and her numbers are all generally up, although her shooting percentages from three and from the line are slightly down.

Aubrey Griffin is tied for second in free throw attempts, 14 (only making 6) and is second in field goal percentage at .550. She has only taken one three. She also leads the team with 11 steals.

Kyla is 11-12 from the field and 3-4 from the line. Wow!

Anna Makurat leads the team in assists with 22. ONO is second with 20. Crystal had 225 last year but is on pace to have about 118 this year. That will pick up, I am sure.

I like! Kyla, I've been a cheerer and detractor of Kyla for near 4 years. This year I am impressed and disturbed --where has this been? She thrilled me in one game that was deteriorating and she stepped up to the foul line and like a SENIOR drilled 2 easily. Along with her Post defense and 3 point shooting, assisting she surely impresses.
Ania--is a special case. A freshman Pro. Her passing is near excellent. She knows where to assist. She needs confidence and more PT. Geno drilled her on defense and she replied with better defense and shooting. She and Griffin will earn their keep.
