    If AG did return would Cole get PT because that’s 5 guards.

    How good is Cole? Is there a guard we know who he compares to?

    Not Losing Sleep

    Not so sure. We do this every year saying just wait, the sun will be bright tomorrow. Hurley needs to do some major work before we can say this IMO. Vital bye bye is a bunch of scoring to lose and rebounding BTW.

    Gov. Ned Lamont proposes $55M investment in Hartford’s XL Center arena

    100 million? The seating and set up inside doesn't change? About 2/3 of the upper level seats are not great and wouldn't a new arena address that?

    I love this team but...

    Team went all out yesterday so there is no blame I'd want to give in a great effort. My concern is next year at this point because we will lose Gilbert and Vital, get back Polley and Akok, and I think we are still going to have trouble scoring. What BA did yesterday did not instill confidence...

    Whaley

    In the past years he never was given significant PT. I would say that he's set up for a great season next year but didn't I say that about Carlton last year?

    Best player on floor tonight. Wingspan, rebounds, disruption, imagine if he didn’t have 4 fouls.

    Most "spectacular" plays in UConn histiory

    Just saw Kemba win a game with that same step back. Guy didn't fall down but he was faked about 5 feet away.

    Bouknights NBA stock

    There was an Akok reference in a post responding to. As for Bouk if he blows up next year he's gone. The world has changed but our 3-year stars that have excelled in the NBA are good pattern to follow and staying 3 years while his body matures maybe makes him a top 10 pick.

    Channel 3 UCONN Fan Poll

    The men can never recruit at that level and though I respect the women’s accomplishments and their style of play, the degree of difficulty the men face is many times more. Think for a second about Kemba’s BE tourney run all the way to the title. The women basically start their run when they have...

    Bouknights NBA stock

    Akok is a great shot blocker but how could that skinny body hold up in the NBA? He's not skinny/strong like RIP was. There were times this year setting screens where he looked like a twig about to snap.

    Channel 3 UCONN Fan Poll

    So last night I’m watching sports on the news and they were running a poll. It was which team do fans watch when both the UCONN men’s and women’s basketball teams are on tv at the same time? The results they had on were men 12%, women 88%. I was surprised at that lopsided number I must say...

    Post game locker room video from UConn

    The one thing we don’t have to worry about is Hurley’s connection to his kids.

    Penny = Calipari II

    And the guy has drive to be successful. he made enough dough in his NBA career to not have to do this.

    Carlton part trois

    As someone who has been frustrated with Carlton before for his inability to finish, he did a lot of good stuff yesterday. Just the way he fought. Regardless of his line if he plays like that with that kind of effort I'm good with him. Can't ask a kid to do what he can't do like jump higher.

    Looking Forward From the Injury

    Does anyone remember a guy named Miller? This is what I'm talking about. Don't know how realistic it is but that's what we need.

    Looking Forward From the Injury

    Hurley has got to find some answers that are not on our current roster. He needs to pull a rabbit out of the hat for next year, it's only realistic especially with that level of competition in the BE. Otherwise we are in the bottom of standings. With Akok it would have been tough enough. The...

    Don't know exactly what his diagnosis is but whatever the state of his brain, it ain't good. Might not see him in public after that.

    Carlton, Part Deux

    Why Has UCONN been unable to get a decent big man for so many years? Last one was Drummond Who we had for 2 years. Almost every team we play including Div2 has bigs that abuse us and put up good numbers. Just seems that way Forever. Every team is trying to recruit this position but we never can...

    Thoughts

    I saw Akok setting a screen a while back. He looked like a toothpick stick figure. That body type doesn’t gain weight easily. shot blocker fine but he’s going to need to pull up for mid range jumpers to get his O.

    Thoughts

    I’m really happy with Whaley’s progression but Hurley needs a big man. I’ll take a Kevin Freeman clone. That would make us sweet sixteen next year.

    You're right, that was him being a jerk 40 years ago. I don't envy the people who will be his caregivers.

    SMU

    UCONN men's hoop is on an upward climb. We need to keep that going so yes we need this game to keep the momentum going in the right direction.i want to get to the bubble but there's no room for error. And now there's confidence.

    Jim Calhoun's St. Joseph Blue Jays debut in the D3 Top 25

    Would Calhoun have a better record than Hurley with our current team? No way to know if course but I would guess yes. He would have pulled some players in a nanosecond that Hurley did not.
