    Starting Lineup for Our Return to the BEAST

    It's really hard to find lineup data for college basketball so I can't speak to how they were specifically together on the court last year, and I know they ended the year starting together, but I'd be really surprised if Whaley and Carlton are on the floor at the same time a lot together this...

    New Podcast: Alex Oriakhi

    He was a beast defensively his sophomore year. If you re-watch the Arizona and San Diego State games he completely wrecked what they were trying to do offensively whenever he was in the game.

    Shot blockers that have torn their Achilles?

    Varejao tore his achilles and was really never the same after it. It's really tough to compare a lot of guys who have had the injury to Akok though because so many of them were older when they got injured and who knows if their production would've plateaued anyway regardless of the injury. Akok...

    UConn Looking to Start a H/H Series at Home

    UConn has to play four home and home series with AAC teams, men's or women's. My guess is they do a two and two split, but I think the AAC is even worse in women's basketball than men's so who knows.

    All Time “Above Their Head” UConn Performances

    Ollie obviously wasn't a good coach, but at times he could be very good at figuring out the right lineup combinations and if a certain type of action was working on offense he kept going to it until the other team proved they could stop it-likely the NBA influence. The 2014 team's personnel was...

    Okay. All time UConn AAC team

    Maybe I'm crazy but I don't see how anyone can have Facey or Carlton over Miller. Unless this about career accomplishments in the AAC rather than how good they were at their peak.

    Okay. All time UConn AAC team

    Napier Boatright CV DeAndre Shonn Miller(even though the number of rebounds that slipped through his hands was infuriating)

    Really sad of CV

    My guess is the NCAA and the conferences take this day by day until a player/coach is infected. They’d love to make it through Sunday and then have the field set so they could potentially postpone the tournament knowing the field. I’d be surprised if they avoid any positive cases until then but...

    Utah/OKC game delayed (canceled?)

    They're taking Mudiay and Gobert to the hospital to get tested. What's odd is that they've known they were feeling sick all afternoon and didn't take the teams off the court until right before tipoff.

    NCAA tournament update

    The article says they'd only be prohibited in Snohomish, King, and Pierce counties, which isn't where the tournament is being held(Spokane).

    Can we get an updated AAC bracket?

    I don't think there's a scenario out there that would put us against Tulsa in the 2nd round now. SMU was up by 9 with less than 2 minutes to go. Brutal.

    2020 talent level potential compared to past teams

    Yes he was, in '08.

    2020 talent level potential compared to past teams

    AJ Price was a 2nd team All-American. If we have guys who are that good next year I'll be very happy. Either way, it's really tough to compare to the '09 team to almost any other team at UConn because they were so unique in how they played. They only had 2 guards on the floor most of the time...

    Kemba Injured.. it might be bad

    Was he moving at all when they put him on the stretcher?

    Brendan Adams...a true BAdass!!!

    20 points on 6 shots is insane.

    UConn All-Decade Teams (2010-2019)

    I know that the way he left (and his final season at UConn) rubbed a lot of fans the wrong way, but Oriakhi was an extremely good defender his Sophomore year. If you re-watch the San Diego State and Arizona games, he completely destroyed what they tried to do offensively, especially Arizona in...

    2020 Recruiting: Dylan Cardwell OV

    In that one game that everybody remembers. Out of the 3 matchups they had, Blair outplayed Thabeet once, Thabeet outplayed Blair once, and they were even the other time. It's just the nationally televised game on ESPN where Blair yanked Thabeet's arm that everyone immediately remembers, and for...

    Question for the “I hate fouling at the end of games” crowd

    The best was at the end of the 2014 title game when Calipari didn't even bother to foul because he knew with the Napier-Boatright-Giffey-Kromah-Daniels lineup there was no point.

    Rothstein on UConn

    The number of guys who can create their own shot from 3 at 6'8 is pretty small, so I can't hold that against him. Klay Thompson is probably the second best shooter on earth and he almost exclusively shoots off the catch. I understand that trying to create your own shot will bring your...

    Rothstein on UConn

    I think the line between very good(or even good) and elite is really difficult too. I'm just inclined to agree with @husky429 that 3 point shooting is extremely important in this day and age, and the value of it can't be overlooked. Considering the bench options we have right now at forward...

    Rothstein on UConn

    He didn't have enough attempts to qualify last year but he would've been 77th in the country. A lot of the guys on the list are playing mid major or low major competition so I think he did pretty well.

    Rothstein on UConn

    Fair enough, but you're not going to see that out of a lot of forwards in college unless they're lottery picks, which obviously Polley isn't.

    Rothstein on UConn

    I don't know what your definition of elite is but 39% from 3 for a college player is at least pretty close. I definitely agree that Polley has some major gaps in his game but if people can't understand the value in having your 4 man shoot almost 40% from 3 in 2019, I don't know what to say...

    No Way to Stream Giants For Free on CBS out of Area?

    If DirecTV doesn't service your address you have the option to buy a Sunday Ticket package to access online, but those are the only options I think.

    NBA Offseason

    Seeing those win totals just shows how much better the West is than the East. If the Celtics were in the West they'd have a really tough time making the playoffs yet they could possibly end up being the 3rd seed in the East.

    NBA Offseason

    I guess the question is what does Plan A really mean, is what's the best possible outcome or what what is the most realistic? Like for UConn in 2020 I would consider a guy like Cam Thomas the Plan A, but he's probably not a realistic get.
  28. J

    NBA Offseason

    Their Plan A was obviously to get Anthony Davis. I know that he's automatically a scrub now that he's on the Lakers, but that's who they wanted. The fact that he was never going to sign long term for the C's doesn't make it any less of a Plan A.

    NBA Offseason

    You can think that and still not think that landing Kemba and Kanter was the Celtic's plan A. I love Kemba but the Celtics seem resigned to purgatory for awhile unless Hayward improves massively.

    NBA Offseason

    The rookie contracts really aren't that crazy. Ben Simmons *only* made 6.5 million this past year, and he's an All-Star. It's when guys get to 6+ years of service that the contracts start to get really big.

    NBA Offseason

    I think you're way overrating the Pistons. Last year they were two games away from missing the playoffs in the East. Adding a 34 year old Chris Paul isn't going to change that by too much.

    NBA Offseason

    I could see Kupchak and Jordan trying to shed Batum by offering him and a pick for Paul. It would go against their rebuilding strategy but they might just do whatever they can to get people to go to games and CP3's obviously from North Carolina.

    NBA Offseason

    I think the Magic will make the playoffs, and I don’t see the Celtics finishing above 5th. The rest I agree with generally, although I’d have the Nets over the Heat. The Bucks might win 65 games and I think they’re the clear favorites to win come out of the East, and probably the best bet to win...

    Jokic is more accomplished than Anthony Davis? That's enough internet for me today.
