I'm certainly not glad about the loss, but did anyone think UConn was going to go on forever without losing? I start off every game worrying, "This could be the one." Usually, it doesn't take long to allay my fears. Well, this game was the inevitable one.
In reading all the comments, one would think we had major problems during the game. We didn't. We were ahead by 10 points with 6:30 to go. From that point Stanford went 8 for 10 from the floor to tie the game in regulation. In overtime we were outscored by 2 points. Now, I'm not trying to take away from Stanford's accomplishment. This was an important win for their program with the implementation of their remodeling. The importance was emphasized by the championship type celebration that occurred at game's end. But, in the final analysis, we lost by 2 points in a hostile environment with the crowd keeping track of lane violations for the refs. I take nothing away from Stanford or their fans, they did a great job. Disappointing, yes, we were so close. But certainly far from a disaster being only the second game of the season with a bench full of future stars. The future looks pretty good to me.
