The early NCAA women's basketball preseason top 10

David Butler II-USA TODAY Sports

It's early, but after discussions with insiders and looking at the talent across the nation, here's a preseason top 10 for the 2013-14 NCAA women's basketball season.

1. Connecticut Huskies: They return Breanna Stewart, Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis and Stefanie Dolson. The three of them could probably win a National Championship on their own. Can you say "undefeated"?

2. Duke Blue Devils: They have the most talent of any team other than UConn and get point guard Chelsea Gray back from injury but they couldn't beat UConn on a bet no matter where the game is being played.

3. Kentucky Wildcats: Matthew Mitchell is a great coach and only A'dia Mathies is lost from a very athletic team.

4. Stanford Cardinal: Chiney Ogwumike returns with a strong supporting cast.

5. Tennessee Lady Vols: They're back under Holly Warlick and incoming frosh Mercedes Russell won't hurt.

6. Maryland Terrapins: They welcome back guard Brene Moseley and a strong frontcourt.

7. Louisville Cardinals: Shoni Schimmel and Sara Hammond will only get better.

8. Notre Dame Fighting Irish: Yes Skylar Diggins is gone but Kayla McBride returns and they no longer have to face UConn in conference.

9. California Golden Bears: Gennifer Brandon will be one of the best players anywhere.

10. Baylor Lady Bears: Coach Mulkey can coach and Odyssey Sims may be the best player in the nation.
