After sweeping through the first regular season in American Athletic Conference history, No. 1 UConn took home several awards Thursday.

Seniors Stefanie Dolson and Bria Hartley and sophomores Moriah Jefferson and Breanna Stewart were named to the AAC’s first team by the league coaches. It marks the second time UConn had four players make its conference’s first team: Swin Cash, Sue Bird, Asjha Jones and Diana Taurasi were first team all-Big East in 2001-02. The Huskies had three (Maya Moore, Tina Charles and Renee Montgomery) in 2008-09.

Dolson, the fifth player in program history with 1,000 rebounds, was also chosen as AAC defensive player of the year and shared the sportsmanship award with Louisville’s Tia Gibbs.

Guard Saniya Chong was named to the all-freshman team. And juniors Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis and Kiah Stokes were named to the second team.

The league will announce its player of the year and coach of the year Friday afternoon before the start of tournament play at the Mohegan Sun Arena.
