More than fine. Figured all the people panicking should read this.

And he's going to make the Huskies a bigger problem than they otherwise would be in the Big East, because now Jim Calhoun has two dynamic ball-handlers to go with an All-American wing (Jeremy Lamb) and a pro big (Andre Drummond). Sprinkle in the pieces that are Alex Oriakhi, Tyler Olander, DeAndre Daniels and Roscoe Smith, and forget about how the Huskies look now. Think ahead to March and how they could look then.

It's scary.

The pieces are in place to compete for another title.


UConn wins with new/fun backcourt

Absolutely true & our depth at the bigs is a huge luxury when they all get onto the same page...
RS really does have a good outside shot
AO will get back the fundamentals of positioning and confidence to be effective on offense in the low post, like he showed in Maui against KY and the NCAAs
TO will start stroking the 15-17 footer again
AD will be more consistent on FTs and avoid the unnecessary fouls

Here's Jeff Goodman at CBS:

Shabazz Napier showing why there is no need to worry about his perimeter shot. Has made a handful of 3's already against FSU. UConn up 8.

UConn in danger of losing back to back games. FSU ties it with Xavier Gibson 3 and has chance to take lead with less than 5 min left.


GoodmanCBS Jeff Goodman

UConn down 3 with seconds left and Jeremy Lamb doesn't touch the ball. Boatright gets bail-out. Fouled. shooting 3 FTs to tie. Hits all 3.

Snaer misses baseline jumper. Good defense from Jeremy Lamb. UConn fortunate to get to OT against Florida State.


GoodmanCBS Jeff Goodman

Jeremy Lamb cannot be considered one of the elite players in the nation until he becomes more assertive, aggressive.

Tim Floyd knew what he was doing when he took commitment from Ryan Boatright as a kindergartener. Boatright playing well in college debut.

UConn escapes with a 78-76 win over Florida State. This Huskies team is extremely erratic right now. Napier, Drummond inconsistent.

I remember last year UNC, UK and Butler all having poor starts. It's all about getting ready for March.

Jeremy is already one of the game's elite players. I guess Jeff hasn't caught on yet.
