Have to shake my head when folks say he underachieved. The guy was 1st team AAC and 2nd team AAC as well as 1st team all freshman team in 1st 3 years. It's not his fault that he has not had/have the accompanying team he envisioned when he came to UConn.
Yeah he has had some dings due to personal decisions but the kid is a scorer and is a talent but most of all he is a Husky and stuck it out for 4 years
I wish him the best

The 2014 championship was straight up a horseshoe shoved up the collective fans arses. Still don't know how we pulled that one off.
We had a great player in Shabazz Napier with other good college basketball players surrounding him.

There was nothing LUCKY about that run. They led everyone but St. Joe's from start to finish.

Just like luck has nothing to do with the disaster that is UConn athletics right now.

Ugh..Couldn’t watch the game tonight but was checking score updates on ESPN. Checked in to the board here to get people’s take on why we were getting blown out and found out about Jalens injury. Feel bad for the kid. Hopefully he will be able to resume his career in the future wherever that may be. Time for the rest of the team to accept what happened, step up, play hard for the rest of the year and make each ones case for next year.

Eh. They were a ____ hair from losing in the first round. And the point is that team basically came out of nowhere to win the whole thing, which doesn't happen very often. You get some good breaks and some bad ones. We've have some rough times lately but we've also had two teams that most people didn't expect to cut down nets cut down nets, and every year stacked teams don't do that.

Man I hope Jalen can come back before the end of the season but even a grade 1 sprain to the knee is about a month recovery time

Wish Jalen well with injury, hopefully completing his degree and moving beyond college.

Much happier seeing B Adams and Sid Wilson get significant minutes moving forward.

How official is this MCL diagnosis? Usually nothing official comes out until the next day at least.

Perhaps not, but at least one person on Sunday wished to never see him play again.
Many people have wished it over the course of this season. One even started a thread calling him the "Most Hated UConn Player of All Time.

3rd bite of the same rotten apple and you do the 'giveth and taketh away' thing.
Your first post could have been, "I guess I'll just pack it in," or restraint of tongue & pen. Any good reason why not?

During my fellowship in Sports Medicine the team doc for the professional team we worked with said early on everything is a “sprain.” Never give the press or public any information that the team doesn’t want them to have.

I got home around 6:45 and didn’t see it. MCL may not be season ending, ACL is.

I’ll see if I can find a replay.
