Absolutely not. Men are stronger, tougher, can jump higher, are faster, are more athletic, etc. Its not a knock on anything other than an anatomy issue. The one thing that women's basketball has going from them is their fundamentals. But when you get to the lower divisions in mens basketball you see more fundamental teams.
I would even venture to say this. UCONN's womens team couldn't beat a good high school team. Could you imagine UCONN playing against Jarrod Sullinger and co. last season? I remember a story years ago in SI about Tennessee's womens team and how they practiced against a team of male students. These males students gave UT everything they could handle and more.
