This season fifth-ranked UConn (2-0) start the season in a similar manner that they did last year, with former National Player of the Year Paige Bueckers out. Last season they weathered the storm and made it back to the NCAA Championship game, something they look to do this year with Bueckers taking on a very different role than she could have ever imagined two seasons ago after winning every individual award and winning a National Championship. They take on 10th-ranked NC State (4-0), which has its eyes on making a name for itself this season.

This season Bueckers starts the season as a player-coach after an ACL injury sidelined her for the entire 2022-2023 season.
In two games this season Connecticut has shown that they are not taking a season off due to that injury. They are averaging 90.5 points per game and limiting their opponents to just 57.5 points per game early on.
A big part of that success has been the evolution of sophomore Azzi Fudd who is averaging 29.0 points and 4.0 assists per game on 58-33-100 splits.
On the other side for N.C. State, they are winning with defense and team play. They have three players averaging in double-figures while holding opponents to just 46.5 points per game through four games.
