The wheels of the offseason are officially in motion for UConn women’s basketball. The Huskies finalized their incoming freshmen class by landing Sarah Strong, the No. 1 2024 prospect, over the weekend and opened up two scholarships with Amari DeBerry and Inês Bettencourt entering the transfer portal.

That means the focus now turns to potential additions from the transfer market.

Current roster

UConn has no shortage of talent next season, but even more question marks. The Huskies will return Paige Bueckers, KK Arnold, Ashlynn Shade, Ice Brady and Qadence Samuels from the Final Four squad and will also get Aubrey Griffin, Azzi Fudd, Caroline Ducharme, Jana El Alfy and Ayanna Patterson back from injury. Then UConn will bring in Strong alongside guards Morgan Cheli and Allie Ziebell as freshmen.
