    Why isn’t Diggins playing?

    That’s been the $1,000,000 question…

    Chief’s Briefs - MES Edition

    IIRC, we had a long gap leading up to the Creighton game because of Covid. We were supposed to play NC State at Mohegan, but that game was called off. I think by the time we played Creighton, we were off for over 2 weeks.

    I thought It was strange and probably feels more like a road game traveling the day before a game and spending the night in a hotel. But, I guess it’s more important keeping the guys together and away from any distractions the night before a game.

    Pretty sure…I actually read about that in Jim Calhoun’s book. I was surprised because I never knew that. Maybe things have changed, but I guess It makes sense, especially for those games that start at noon.

    To your point on the quick turnaround from the Bahamas. The team got back to CT on Saturday? Whenever we play at the XL, the team stays in Hartford the night before. So, that gave them only one full day (Sunday) to rest before it was literally hitting the road again.

    ThoughtZ™ and Hawks are giving me a headache.

    Conference play starts in 19 days. We have one more cupcake in Grambling followed by St Bonaventure and WVU before we open BE play vs PC. You can make the argument that the next 19 days are the most crucial of the season. Whatever has been going wrong needs to get fixed before conference play so...

    When This Kind Of Thing Happens

    I heard them mention during the game how UMES did not play last season so It’s hard to judge where they should be ranked. As of right now, they are 2-5. Just looking at their schedule, the most lopsided loss was at Temple 72-49, and the other losses vs St Joe’s, Campbell, and Liberty were by 2...

    Chief’s Briefs - MES Edition

    Im not trying to be all sunshine and roses, but I think a lot of that was due to a post Bahamas hangover from everyone, coaching staff included, and no Tyrese. We missed his toughness. Cole has been the star of this team so far. But, where is Samson and Rahsool? At some point these guys are...

    And is that because some guy is mad the national writers have more of the inside scoop than he does?

    I think he has said on record that he will no longer Tweet about UConn Athletics. IDK the reason, but It is a little strange.

    So Long Bahamas

    Agree. Atlantis has now surpassed Maui as the premier November Tournament. Im sure travel has a lot to do with that. Maui Is great, but Paradise Island/Atlantis In the Bahamas is a great place as well, and It’s about 10-12 hours closer for most schools. Of the 3 times we played in this event...

    If you’d a told me 18th KenPom

    There is 3 months plus of basketball to be played before we get to the conference and NCAA Tournaments. There is so much time and season left. There will be up’s and down’s along the way. It’s crazy to put too much stock into what happened the last 3 games and think thats how It’s going to be...

    Next Season’s Roster

    Honestly, If Cole continues to play at the level he currently is, he will have an opportunity to make money playing basketball next year. Probably not the NBA, but I wouldn’t count on him returning.

    So Long Bahamas

    Dykes is OK. He mostly does SEC games, so I would think this was probably the first time he’s called a UConn game. As far as Karl Ravech goes, It’s just strange hearing him call basketball since he is so synonymous with baseball. They did spend a minute or two praising Calhoun . Ravech went on...

    One thing I want to know about officiating Is how much they are actually held accountable? We hear all the time that refs have a tough job, which they absolutely do, but Its never talked about in depth how they are graded for their performance. As a ref, Is a missed call worse than a wrong call...

    VCU UConn thoughts

    From some of the post game quotes Ive read from the guys, It seems like they were down about yesterday’s loss, and upset they were not playing Baylor for the Championship. Maybe today was more the product of a let down, especially after the way the last 2 games went, and losing like they did vs MSU.

    Chief’s Briefs - VCU Edition

    As always, good job, Chief. I think everyone is on the same page on the ball handling situation after these last 3 games. The coaching staff knows this as well, and that’s why I think we will finally see more of Rahsool in our next game. But, how is Corey Floyd as a ball handler? This has not...

    Chief’s Briefs - VCU Edition

    I agree, and It is still very early. It’s not even December yet. There is still a lot of basketball to be played. Hawkins has shown flashes that he could be a great player. I can’t wait to see what his stats are in February.

    VCU Scouting Report

    This is not a push over by any means. VCU actually has more wins over Power 6 teams at this point than we do. This would be a solid win, and If you said that before Atlantis started we would win 2 out of 3 with wins over Auburn, VCU, and the only loss to Michigan St, I would have signed up for that.

    Diggins Johnson Springs Time

    At some point these guys are going to have to get minutes. They are going to be big pieces to the puzzle next year (maybe even this year), so they need to get some in game experience. Maybe not tomorrow, but I would like to see what they have with more playing time coming up when we face...

    RJ is just fine, he does not have to be Kemba Walker for this team to win.

    A Random Observation…

    Exactly! I don’t know if they get a little too emotionally invested into the first game, but you have to turn the page. Going back 2-3 years ago, talent was probably more the issue, but It is kind of crazy how we are winless in game 2 of these tournaments we have played.

    A Random Observation…

    We have not done well in the second game of these style tournaments over the last few years. In the 2K Sports from a few years ago, we made a statement by beating Syracuse, but got blown out by Iowa the next night. The AAC Tournament of that same season, we beat USF, then got blown out vs...

    Use it as motivation to blow the doors off what most likely will be VCU tomorrow.

    Late Game Management

    If only we showed up to start the game, maybe things would be different too? Im no basketball expert, but It seems like our offense is becoming way too predictable. And, who knows what happens if Whaley was playing?

    Guaranteed Karl Ravech is going to push it too far with the air fryer and Akok on Thanksgiving Day…

    MSU Opens as 1 pt Favorite.

    The noon start time worries me. After the game yesterday, I would have felt more comfortable if this game was played later. Maybe just having those few extra hours to sleep in a little without having to rush the pre game routine would help?

    Game day from Atlantis

    Please, no. We’ve had enough bad luck with injuries over the last few years. But, we hope no other players get hurt either. Maybe It’s a humidity issue?

    Rut roh, Saint Bonaventure leading Marquette 56 to 31 with nine minutes to go in the second half.

    I was actually at that Seton Hall game in 1999 as well. IIRC, It was a very low scoring game. 53-48 was the final? But I agree, It probably was about 50% UConn fans that day.

    Rut roh, Saint Bonaventure leading Marquette 56 to 31 with nine minutes to go in the second half.

    Our fans used to show up in New Jersey all the time when we played Seton Hall at the Meadowlands in the 90’s. Hurley said in his opening press conference that it seemed like there were more UConn fans than Seton Hall fans. I think he was right. As far as our most recent games in NJ a couple...

    Concerns vs Binghamatan

    I had a feeling today would be a little bit of a rough sea comapred to the smooth sailing we had with the first 3 games. Not making excuses, but we were coming off a blowout win at Gampel a few days ago, and we are about to get on a plane to the Bahamas in a couple days to play big competition...

    Twelfth Team to the Big East

    I just don’t know how they can make that work. That would be absolutely brutal for Gonzaga as far as the constant cross country travel. It’s a shame because It makes sense from the basketball perspective, but the travel I think makes it literally too far out of reach.
