Hamilton’s Kia Nurse has been named the American Athletic Conference Preseason Player of the Year.
The junior guard, who won a 2nd consecutive women’s basketball title at Connecticut last year, was also named to the Preseason All-Conference First Team.
Nurse and the Huskies will try to win an unprecedented 5th straight NCAA hoops crown this season.
Nurse was the only Husky to start in every game for UConn last season.
She finished fifth on the team last year with 9.3 points per game.
The St. Thomas More grad was one of four Huskies to accumulate at least 100 assists in 2014/15.
