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.
I think you are slightly misinterpreting my point. We, as fans, were very fortunate to see that team win a championship only 3 years removed from the last one and 2 years after a postseason ban and a head coaching change. There was nothing lucky about what the players accomplished during that run. But don't sit there and act like you had any expectation we would win that tournament as a 7 seed. I wasn't even sure we would beat St. Joe's.Uhhhh...BAZZ(!!!) happened.
We are very lucky fans.
