- Reaction Score
- We started hot, and finished pretty strong. In-between, we looked surprisingly and depressingly like last year's team.
- 55 fouls called. The refs refused to allow the game to get in the way of their agenda.
- Hook & Hold needs to be completely rethought. There is no way to know which player instigated it, and both players are trying to make it appear as if the other player is at fault. Bigs get their arms tangled all the time jockeying for position.
- The ref that had the ball hit him out of bounds and didn't call it out, and Hurley went ballistic on him, had a superjohn for Hurley from that point on. And the bald one... I don't even know what to say about him. Seemed like the 2nd coming of Teddy.
- Gilbert was fantastic. Wish he had asserted himself more.
- Conversely, until the last 8 or 9 minutes, Adams had the worst game I can remember him playing.
- Smith's line somehow doesn't look as bad as he seemed to be playing in real time.
- Again, we turned it over too many times. Yet we still managed to win the turnover margin battle (19 to 22) while simultaneously losing the game.
- Fouls were nearly even (28/27), as were rebounds (37/38)
- Not that it's saying much, but Yakwe had his best game as a Husky.
- The announcers... Neither of them should ever work a college basketball game again. Lets talk Army Football and get as many baseball references in as we can while ignoring the the game in front of us. "UConn has been horrendous from the line." No, idiot, if you were paying attention, you would have known that Cobb and Wilson were hideous from the line, while the rest of the team was busy going 17 of 19. Isn't that what analysts are supposed to do? Analyze what's going on in front of them? Same meathead... "That's the third hook and hold called on UConn tonight." No, the first one was called on FSU, moron. But you can't be expected to remember from way back in the 1st half, because you're too busy talking about Army Football.
- This game was overall depressing and had a 2017/2018 feel to it, which is even more depressing.
