Cassell makes one more 3 and we win, but yes I would like our 5 star Hamilton to be one of the ones with the shots in crunch time along with Boat.

Not a very deep high D1 roster. If we have to keep good teams under 55 to win not sure we can score 56.

Exactly, ratings don't matter, it's why Puke and UK never have good teams

Our three four/five-star recruits -

14/36, 41 pts, 22 rebounds. 97 minutes

Our five three-star recruits -

3-18, 13 pts, 9 rebounds. 103 minutes.

I'm pretty sure they finally banned him.
it was just a troll account right? No way that person actually exists.

Not enough shooters

This team is desperately lacking that knock down shooter. Forget Rashad Anderson, I'd kill for Albie Mouring right now. I'm hopeful that OC can be that guy when he gets healthy.

You mean giving three scholarships to a pair of walk-ons and a JUCO transfer wasn't a good sign?

Guys, UConn doesnt need top recruits to win, we will continue winning championships at our current rate of 10 NC's over the next 40 years while developing these sub-100 guys into Ray Allens, jeez.

We are short a couple of guys who can score the ball - to be a good team you need more good options.

Oddly enough, I was hearing the same thing about our squad around this time last year. Stuff like we've got Shabazz and who else. But then Giffey ended up shooting almost 50% from the 3 and Daniels turned into a stud. I can't wait to see who else steps up this year... ;)

If we don't win 2 of 3 of Duke, Florida and Stanford, we will have bigger problems than seeding.
Exactly. If we just beat Florida, and say we drop 2-3 in conference, and then get upset in the AAC's, we could very well be NIT bound.

However, being the defending national champions has some pull with the committee I think.

Welp, better put everything on winning the AAC tourney for the auto bid and a 9 seed.

-Junglehusky, are you being sarcastic?

-I don't even know any more.

No, Nelson is right. We don't have a quality win. And if we only beat Florida (who fell on their face), is like a Dayton-esque win. There are no ranked teams in conference this year. We're in trouble if we don't win some OOC games.

Ah, the crap AAC conference problem. These last 2 losses would mean next to nothing otherwise with an entire decent conference slate ahead. I'm concerned about not getting tested when we need it the most later in season.

Remember we were missing Omar (a top 35 player 4 star) and Purvis (a top 20 player 5 star). We will get better.

It certainly wouldn't hurt if Amidah showed up more than a few minutes each half. He played better in the second half but his hands ugh. I agree that we need better shooting but what we really need are easier baskets. Amidah cleaning up some loose change would help.

Alas, slight correction above.
