Thirty seven wins and no losses.

The Ashland women’s basketball team put together some numbers last season, running the table as they stomped to a second national title in five years.

So what to do for an encore?

Head coach Robyn Fralick is wasting little time getting her team back into the swing of things. The defending champs hit the road Sunday to take on Ohio State before heading to Storrs, Connecticut a week later for an exhibition bout with the iconic UConn womens’s basketball team.

If you want to be the best, you got to go see the best,” Fralick said. “See what that looks like and learn from it.”

As cliché as it may sound, there is no denying that anyone can learn from watching Geno Auriemma and a program that was responsile for a record 111-game winning streak.

“The biggest thing for us is the experience we can get,” Fralick said. “Both of these teams are the top women’s teams in the country. UConn, they’re the best. Any sport, any gender. Let’s go see what that looks like, let’s go see what that experience is like. Hopefully we can use that moving into our own season.

“I get asked a lot how we are preparing for UConn. The reality is we are preparing for Ashland. That’s our focus going into the season.”
