LINCOLN — The rock stars of women’s college basketball play the card game Uno in the corner of a locker room inside Pinnacle Bank Arena. A few players have their feet up on a small table that holds their pitch pile. They laugh and discard quickly while a handful of teammates talk with reporters. This is No. 1 Connecticut — 36-0 and barreling toward its NCAA-record ninth national title — at brief rest.

Another game, where the UConn players try to memorize the names of the media covering them — is also afoot. Always a competition. Always on.
