In December, five members of the Husky team, Anthony Kay, Bobby Melley, Jack Sundberg, Willy Yahn and Joe DeRoche-Duffin, were honored by the American Athletic Conference as members of the league’s preseason all-confence squad. Additionally, Kay was selected as The American’s Preseason Co-Pitcher of the Year. As a team, UConn earned 32 points in the coaches’ poll, including a first-place vote, on its way to a fourth-place finish.
