    Final Big East Draw

    PC game scares me the most. First post season game for this team, while an experienced PC team will be playing their second game this tournament and will be fighting for their post season life. We beat PC, we're winning the BET

    But Nova has won every regular season title, that does say something The other programs may be second weekend good occasionally, but we aim higher

    Tyler Polley’s mercurial UConn career is winding down

    I knew kids had another year. Didn't know they didn't even count against the scholarship allotment Could Vital have returned for this season?

    Thanks to Husky Nation!!

    The only statement I would disagree with, last years seniors suffered more. That would be both Vitale who deserved something more and Gilbert who was oft injured. Both were denied their last and only opportunity to participate in the post season by the pandemic. Although Gilbert may get a...

    A+ game for Hurley, Cole, defense and the bigs

    I forgive Hurley for any transgressions

    If Seton Hall is seriously considered a bubble team...

    Silly as it sounds, I hate sitting as the 10 seed. Going to be hard to move all the way up to 6, and a 7 is no different than a 10. I just dread the 8/9

    Random UConn v Seton Hall memory

    I remember Hall losing to Michigan in the finals and Hall's great teams in the early 90's But that's it for them, they ain't no UCONN

    A+ game for Hurley, Cole, defense and the bigs

    Michigan St and Dook go down

    Y'know the committee will let them in if they can Them losing is good for the whole country Hope they join Squid on the sidelines

    Is Donny A Jack***?

    No, I love the guy and I love him doing games. Although he's no Tommy Heinsohn :) He represents the program well

    Thank you PS: It was a blowout :)

    What did Calhoun teach that Hurley isn't teaching (re: fouls)?

    Calhoun worked the refs like none other. Hence he was on the other side of the calls

    A+ for Hurley, Cole, Bouknight and defense

    It's not just about winning, it's about how they're winning. This team is jelling, Cole is opening up the offense, they're very good on the boards, they're awesome on defense and they're even making their free throws. They're doing the little things right, jelling. Great job Dan Hurley, thank...

    Marquette ThoughtZ™

    The officiating is NOT both ways when the free throws are 21-9, the fouls are 23-15 and the most bizarre missed calls or horrible calls all seemingly go the wrong way. There's absolutely a pattern here, going back to last year when we were victims of the worst officiating I've ever seen. I...

    OT: kemba with 21 tonight. shot the three well and got to the line.

    It's a bizarre season for so many reasons. Hard for me to read too much into anything. We need the return to normalcy before I can judge anyone. Everything is different As for the C's, they need a post presence and they need to play with high energy to succeed. We'll see if anything changes...

    big east tournament routines: what you got?

    Drove too the vast majority of Uconn games from 1990 through 2012. Usually paid top dollar for good seats in the secondary market. Best moments included (there were many) the semifinal and final in 1990, Allen > Iverson in big comeback in 96, epic battles with Pitt, 1999, 2002, 2004, 6 OTs in...

    Marquette vs UNC

    Marquette rolled North Carolina? Guess that means Dook is a lock and we're about to be banned for being the last name team to report failing APR grades over a decade ago

    Big 10 Over Hyped

    Changing sports, I remember the season where everyone thought Michigan should replay Ohio St for the national championship. They were thought to be the two best teams in the country and their first game was amazing Well, the selection committee didn't listen. The end result is that both Ohio St...

    Another terrible first half+ for Hurley.

    Masterpiece by Hurley, far far far more accurate Hate is unhealthy and blinding. If you're going to hate this much, you're going to be miserable for at least the next 20 years Learn to live, learn to enjoy life, learn to make the best of the situation... And yes, there will be bumps in the...

    Free throw disparity

    How does a team that dominates the boards, owns the paint, shoots far fewer threes Get destroyed on the free throw line? This is the polar opposite of what basketball is supposed to be Are we still paying for Calhoun's ownership of the sidelines?

    Big 10 Over Hyped

    A whole lot of self-intoxicating love. That's the beauty of SOS. Team A is better because they played Team B. Team C is better because they played Team A, and team B is better because they played teams A and C. This year even more so than other years, it's hard to judge how good a conference is...

    A+ games for Hurley and Cole

    The game is 40 minutes long and your opponent is going to have a run. Jim Calhoun always coached for the second half, to be at full strength for the second half, to make halftime adjustments Hurley gets an A+ for the several easy buckets he got from the sidelines, especially off of inbounds...
