The UConn Huskies are officially the most successful women's basketball team in the country. The Huskies represent the University of Connecticut, in Storrs, Connecticut in the NCAA Division I women's basketball competition. The Huskies have won a record 11 NCAA Division I National Championships and a women's record four in a row, starting in 2013 through 2016, plus over 50 conference regular season and tournament championships.

They have taken part in every NCAA Tournament since 1989 as of the end of the 2018–19 season. This is the third-longest active streak in Division I. As of 2022, they have also appeared in a record 14 consecutive Final Fours.

According to Wikipedia "UConn owns the two longest winning streaks (men's or women's) in college basketball history. The longest streak, 111 straight wins, started with a win against Creighton University on November 23, 2014, and ended on March 31, 2017, when a buzzer-beater at the end of overtime caused a 66–64 loss in the 2017 NCAA Final Four to Mississippi State. The second streak counts 90 consecutive wins, including two undefeated seasons (2008–09 and 2009–10), and was delimited by two losses against Stanford, the first on April 6, 2008, in the National Semifinals of the NCAA Tournament, and the second – three seasons later – on December 19, 2010. The Huskies also own the longest winning streak in regular-season games in college history; after an overtime loss to Stanford on November 17, 2014, they won their next 126 regular-season games until a 68–57 loss to Baylor on January 3, 2019."

The UConn women's basketball team will again be without superstar guard Paige Bueckers this coming season. The Minnesota native tore her ACL in her left knee in July in a pickup game, and will miss an entire 2022-23 season.

The Huskies will begin the new season with an exhibition game against Division II Kutztown, which reached the Division II NCAA Tournament last season. They will then kick off their regular season with three straight home games. They will play Northeastern on November 10th, Texas on the 14th and North Carolina State on the 20th before heading to Oregon for the Phil Knight Legacy Tournament on Nov. 25th and Nov. 27th of this year.
