If UConn comes out like they did against Memphis, UCF will have their lunch. Geno will have them do some practice tomorrow just to show them what they need to do. Too many turnovers, silly fouls, no offense or defense. One of the worst games I've seen ever by a UConn team. With all that being said, I see them getting it together against the Knights. UConn 85 - UCF 67. All predictions must be in by 5:55 PM Eastern or 2:55 PM Pacific. Attached is the scoring criteria parameters. Good luck to all of you Prognosticators out there.

I'll get the ball rolling here..........UConn 70 - UCF 53. UConn plays better Thursday than they did in Memphis.
I'll be very interested to hear/read the comments from Geno and the BY if UConn plays a similar game against UCF.

With the way UCF plays and what UConn just did at Memphis, you just might end up with 3 points.
I haven't even sniffed a pt this season. Didn't say who would get the 10. More flexability. ;)

UCF is 8-0 at home this season
UCF lost by 5 points to the only undefeated team left in D1 ball, UCLA
UConn can get revenge in the AAC Tournie but they arent recovering in 2 days from the game in Memphis.
Read it and weep.
UConn 63
UCF 70

I don’t think this UCF team is as good as in prior years. Unfortunately, as the Memphis game demonstrated, UConn has a tendency to play down to their competition at times.

My best guess - UConn 75 - UCF 58

Given what we just saw vs. Memphis, and how hard and physical UCF plays, we could lose this game. Which team shows up? The team who ran Houston off the court, or the team who looked like it was their very first game together vs. Memphis?

UCONN 77
UCF 61

To send a message, Geno benches the starting five. That leaves Molly, Evelyn, Anna and Aubrey. They play 4 on 5, 38-10 at the half, Aubrey fouls out, now down to 3 on 5, UCF pours it on, 72-12 at end of 3. Not sure what happens next. UCF has mercy, final is 76 to 14. OR Geno puts in the starting five, they have learned their lesson, pull it out 80-78. Geno says a win is a win.

Something strange I noticed about geno's comments on defense is that he is often tying his appraisal of how well the defense played to the points scored by the other team even if our defense was not the main factor. I do not recall that his assessments were tied to the other teams scoring before?

This is good commentary, BUT I can only use one so please decide before the closing of the predictions.
