Connecticut is dominant yet again but each season seems to bring more parity to the women’s game.

With that, USA TODAY Sports introduces its 2018 Women’s Basketball All-America team, featuring one of the most unique players in the women’s game (A’ja Wilson), a coach who led her team to a regular season title despite a stunning number of injuries (Muffet McGraw) and a sophomore guard already rewriting the triple-double record books. 

Of course, there are a few Huskies, too.
