At least Wilson and Polley were good

I thought everyone but BA had some positive momments
I was pleasantly surprised at the determination and with the outcome - thought for sure it was going to be a complete blow-out especially on their home court
I agree that Sid and Polley stepped up but they both lack basic defensive skills that really hurt the team
Just glad the 1st game without both JA and AG wasn't against Houston or Cinci!!!

Very surprised it was closer than I thought. Could have cut it to 2. One thing I never noticed with Polley was how he stands off to the left when shooting free throws. Did I see that fight or just old eyes?

This L is on the guards
Don't see it that way - Defensively, Memphis had their way in the lane and too many easy shots inside earlier in the game. The guards weren't great but UConn was missing their two best guards, not their best wings/bigs
Everyone had a hand in the loss BUT nearly everyone had a hand in making it closer than many thought
