It's not all about sightseeing in Italy. The Huskies got down to business against one of the best teams in the Italian League Tuesday. The result? A win for UConn.

What I find interesting is that despite Napoli having two decent WNBA players on its roster, the Huskies were better even though they shot poorly from the free throw line and had a large number of turnovers.

There is a reason behind this. Simply put, Europe hasn't caught up with the U.S. in the women's game. You see otherwise with the men. In the women's game, you have the U.S., Brazil, China, Australia, Russia and Japan.

As much as I think their appearance will help foster growth of the game, it will be a while before we start seeing European countries catch up.
