Once again, UConn WBB has navigated a brutal OOC schedule, which is arguably tougher than last year’s gauntlet of ranked teams. While Husky fans have suffered an unusually high level of anxiety due to nagging injuries, inconsistent play off the bench and maybe just “outsized expectations,” for the 10th time in the program’s history UConn is 25-0. With all the stress that seems to be associated with being a diehard Husky fan, I would respectfully suggest that now is a good time for all of us to step back, take a deep breath and enjoy this. At the risk of angering the MOJO gods, there is no chance that UConn will lose another game during the 4 remaining regular season games or in the AAC conference tournament. For the 5th straight season, UConn has basically secured the #1 overall seed for the Big Dance. That means a couple warmup games against overmatched opponents in Storrs during the first two rounds, followed by a trip to a sold-out TUC in Albany which is about as neutral a sight as Webster Bank Arena in Bridgeport or the Mohegan Sun. In the Regionals, at worst, UConn would face a #16 overall seed in the Sweet 16 and a #8 overall seed in the Elite 8 game. Assuming UConn makes it to the FF for the eleventh straight season (We truly are spoiled), the two toughest opponents (MS St & Baylor?) will be on the other side of the bracket, leaving UConn with the possibility of facing a team in the semifinals that they’ve already beaten, or perhaps a team like TN, if they can somehow manage to overcome their tendency to implode. If UConn should make it to the finals, no coaching staff is better at preparing for a quick turnaround for the championship game than Geno, CD, Shea & Marissa. As I'm sure everyone knows, UConn has never lost in a national championship game. Of course, nothing is guaranteed. But I for one plan to watch the Huskies over the next several weeks with a sense of calm, appreciating what they have accomplished once again, and making sure to take some time to stop and smell the roses.
