Many thought then-No. 6 Stanford upsetting then-No. 1 UConn last week, snapping the Huskies’ 47-game winning streak, was good for the women’s basketball season. Well, that was just the beginning.

Poll: Which team will have the best season among the in-state programs?

In the words of Washington State senior G Tia Presley, “the exhibition was such a tease.” More than a week has passed since most teams held an exhibition game, a positive because the NCAA has allowed teams more practice time overall, which should produce better competition.
