Among the former Huskies on the Spirit roster are Wolters, Lobo, Rita Williams and Christine Rigby.
Having Williams, an all-star point guard for the WNBA's Indiana Fever, running the offense, helps him.At times, when the UConn players revert to their college plays during practice, Williams has been there to keep them on task.
Said Williams: "I think if you're a basketball player, I think you go out and play your game, regardless of the competition or what kind of league you're in."

Fellow UConn graduate Rita Williams led the way with 22 points as the Spirit defeated Houston 57-51 in front of 7,854 in the first National Women's Basketball League game played in the state.
If they came to see Lobo, Kara Wolters (3-for-10, eight rebounds) and Williams and to cheer for injured Shea Ralph, who sat on the bench, then they were fine.
Williams was consistent throughout, shooting 4-for-9 in the first half for 12 points.
In the last minute of the game, she hit 3 of 4 free throws and made a key steal.
"I just wanted to win," said Williams, the starting point guard for the WNBA's Indiana Fever, who also had six rebounds, a block and a steal."These fans came out, and they supported us.We wanted to give them something, some excitement, something to cheer about."
The Stealth, who only had nine players, led at halftime, 29-27.
After Tynesha Lewis (18 points) hit a three-pointer to give the Stealth a 32-29 lead, the Spirit went on a 16-4 run and led 45-36 with 11 minutes left.
But Williams hit a free throw, Kristen McCormick made two, then Williams stole the ball and was fouled and hit the final two free throws.

Along with Cash, point guard Rita Williams (a member of the WNBA's Seattle Storm) and former WNBA center Kara Wolters are back from last year's team.
By now, Rita Williams is used to the adulation and attention, a byproduct of playing for UConn, so any bouquets the Spirit fans throw her way now are old hat.
"Oh, they come up to you, still know who you are, they want your autograph," said Williams."That's one of the special things about playing at UConn."
Her stint in Springfield has been fulfilling in other ways for Williams, UConn's starting point guard from 1996-98 and now Bird's backup on the Storm.
