I’m not looking forward to the next couple of days

Looks like every player on the team and the coaches have hit the freshman wall.

Am I being too harsh?

Meh. This team is what it is. Capable of playing Baylor tough for 36 minutes, then looking like a Division 2 school against one of the worst teams in the American Conference.

Disappointed and surprised for sure, but at this point I'm sort of zen about it - if the team doesn't seem to care, not much we can do about it, and certainly screaming and yelling won't change anything. Where's my Sponge-Bob (kudos to anyone who gets that reference!!!) :D

I’d say Memphis had an awful lot to do with UConns troubles. They played really well. It’s nice to see teams that don’t wilt as soon as UConn steps on the floor.
Frankly I see it as a case of UConn wilting like a delicate flower in the paint. There's no toughness on this team. I guess it's just that they are inexperienced but they seem more worried about doing something wrong than about doing something positive. And those that do positive things do them alone while the other 4 watch.

They won the game. Yay!

Liv shot a couple of sky hooks and made at least one (can't remember if she made the first or not). I'd like her to not dribble and just get the ball in the post and turn and shoot. There's noone in WCBB that can block her sky hook if she shoots it that way.

I wouldn't want to do the post game interview when Geno is in a crabby mood...:D

Maybe I have slipped into the Bizarro universe where ASU beats 2 top 5 teams in 3 days and where the Massey No 157 team can out muscle and out hustle the Massey No 3.
Rankings can be interesting but obviously meaningless. An opponent is as good a team as they play in that game and that’s why ideally, you respect every team in your approach to that particular game.
Certainly this is a Uconn team that has flaws and weaknesses and they have been exposed more than once this season. The only one I will mention now, because it is the one most telling for me, is that far too often this season it appears opponents are just playing much harder than Uconn.
