For UConn basketball, 2014 will be a big year as the new practice facility opens on campus. The men's team, barred from the postseason last year as a result of the program's low Academic Progress Rate scores, should make it back to the NCAA Tournament in March, led by Shabazz Napier, pictured here. And the UConn women's basketball team in April will look to win a record ninth NCAA title. UConn and Tennessee each have eight titles.
