ESPN.com's preseason top 10


It's no surprise that the defending champion UConn Huskies top our top 10 after a perfect season in 2008-09. The Huskies -- already No. 1 in the preseason ESPN/USA Today and AP rankings -- were unanimously tabbed as our preseason favorite by ESPN.com's panel of contributors -- columnists Mechelle Voepel, Graham Hays and Charlie Creme and editor Melanie Jackson.
