The School Who Shall Not Be Named will join the A10 tomorrow. Seems like a good fit after they lost Butler, Xavier and Temple. St Louis and maybe Dayton will leave after next year. I know this is a basketball centric move and probably doesnt affect us at all.

I've wrote this before..... Did Denham Brown take the last shot in that game? That loss hurt second only to Laettner shot in Jersey

BS to that. He was a gunner who couldn't shoot. It was a bad set

How quickly we forget who scored the buzzer shot to force OT...

Also, there was no "set" - Denham Brown got the rebound off a George Mason missed free throw with 5 seconds left and ran the ball the length of the floor. He still managed to shake the defender completely off him and get a near uncontested shot off. There was no "set" there was no time for a "set" there wasnt even enough time to really pass it and we had no timeouts. Under the circumstances.. im not blaming Denham Brown.

When you factor in other circumstances (including that at least in appearance, if not actual fact, that Denham was one of perhaps two or three UConn players who actually cared what the outcome of the game would be) it was a great attempt.

Could someone explain where we get these nimrods? If someone knows him, is he that dumb or just an ?

Seriously - what has to happen for this board to get back to where it was a few years ago when peoplE who cared about Uconn sports could have at least semi-intelligent discussions about them?

Okay. No set, but he should have passed it to Williams. Denham was not a clutch shooter.

When the hell did that exist, or are you using the term semi REALLY loosely?

Bazinga! Always had nagging suspicion the agents 'operatives' were telling Rudy, etc. not to get hurt, and unfortunately they were listening.

As I recall, Marcus and Denham were the only ones playing hard that entire tournament run. Everyone else had visions of dollar signs dancing in their heads.

Why would you brag about having asked that before? He had a decent look and there was no time to do anything better.
BS. Shad was wide open waving for the ball but Denham was determined to be the hero. Clang!

Denham also made the game winning buzzer beater in the championship game in Maui against Gonzaga that season. He was clutch, but could not get that last one to go.
Denham wasn't clutch if the shot was outside of 3 feet. He was a starter for 3 out of his 4 years. The year he came off the bench, UConn won it all. Coincidence? I think not.

No one was wide open. No one was waving their hands. Shad was the only player in front of Denham - ill give you that much. But he was in the corner on the complete opposite end of the court meaning Denham would have had to pass the ball across the entire side of the court over the heads of all 5 George Mason players when there was just about 2 seconds left on the clock. Then you have to hope that even if you could successfully make that pass... across the entire court.. over the heads of all the players.. that Rashad can catch it, square away, and shoot before the time expires. Oh, and Rashad has to also.. make the shot too.

Also worth noting, Rudy ran down the court alongside Denham and set a pick on Denham's defender trying to clear the ball out so Denham, not Rashad, not Rudy, not Marcus, could take the last shot.

I'm not using the term loosely at all. Was every post on this board brilliant a few years ago? Of course not. Not even mine. But it was a heck of a lot easier to have intelligent discussions without all this worthless, angry, dumb drivel that you now have to shovel through to try to actually discuss UConn sports.

It's funny the way these conferences try to stockpile teams. Even if Dayton & SLU leave, the conference would *still* have 10 teams. ... As in Atlantic TEN. Who's being added with GM?
