Not much to read with these long layoffs so here are a couple similar articles from the Courant and Register.

Hartford Courant:
Serious defense: Even with some recent breakdowns, UConn is second in the conference in scoring defense (56 points), second in field goal percentage (40.0), first in 3-point shooting defense (28 percent). UConn is fourth in steals and fifth in blocks, with Isaiah Whaley (2.8) second in the league. Generally, UConn has held their opponents, and their opponents’ leading scorers, well below their averages. Like everything else, these numbers were, and likely will be more impressive when players are healthy.

New Haven Register:
Entering Saturday’s action, UConn was ranked No. 44 in the NET rankings, the chief metric used by the NCAA tournament selection committee. That will get you into the Big Dance.

The Huskies are 1-2 in Quadrant 1 games (both losses to Creighton), but opportunities remain. Three of their next five games are Quad 1 opportunities, the other two are Quad 2 games. And another Quad 1 game at home against Villanova could still be re-scheduled.

Here's hoping that we can get a stretch run going like last year and get better as we start to pick up the talent that's been sidelined. All and all this team has shown intestinal fortitude and getting better with execution. I think the team should pick up momentum the longer they play together; especially knowing that help is on the way. They do pick one another up and pull together. I'm getting psyched for the stretch run through the schedule and into the NBE tournament.

Great defensive stats. Great offensive rebounding stats. Missing bunny stats not good.
