    Coach Kevin Ollie doesn't put much credence in preseason polls -- UConn was picked to finish 2nd in the AAC and are ranked 19th nationally -- but any success the Huskies have in 2013-14 will be due in large part to senior point guard Shabazz Napier.

    On Tuesday, Napier was named to the 2014 Bob Cousy Award watch list, the annual honor that goes to the country's best point guard.

    Napier's teammates, junior guard Ryan Boatright, didn't make the list even though he can play both the point and off-guard positions.
