UConn, Texas and more key women’s college basketball questions

We’re less than 100 days from the start of the 2022–23 women’s college basketball season, and while fall practices are still a ways away, much of the offseason madness has shaken out.

A multitude of high-profile transfers and some major coaching changes seem poised to add even more intrigue to the upcoming campaign, plus perennial powerhouse UConn suffered a major setback last week. So with the calendar in August, here are 11 burning questions that seem poised to shape the upcoming season.

1. Can the addition of Shaylee Gonzales help Texas get back to the Final Four?

In each of Vic Schaefer’s first two seasons in Austin, the Longhorns have fallen into the Elite Eight. Last year, behind the stellar play of freshman sensation Rori Harmon, Texas entered the NCAA tournament as a No. 2 seed, and it came within one half of topping their region’s top seed, Stanford. Now in her second season with the program, Harmon, a legitimate All-American candidate, is all but guaranteed to improve. Similar growth can be expected from sophomore forwards Aaliyah Moore and DeYona Gaston. Plus, guard Aliyah Matharu, the team’s leading scorer from last season, is also back for her senior year.
