I think this will be your typical tough, grind it out Uconn/SMU game, 61-52 type game. I feel if Uconn wins it will be like the zona game but in reverse (obviously in reverse), keeping SMU just at arms length but with a little more wiggle room in this one than the Zona game and obviously less scoring. If Uconn wins it will be because someone finally steps up down low and one of the guards knocks down some big 3s in the second half and Jalan has a break out game (two of those three if not all three needed). If Uconn loses it will be because of the last 15 minutes, again and because of stagnant offense as the game wears on. I do not see as much running in this game as earlier in the season, I think Hurley has reigned that in a little but I think we might be pleased with rebounding if Uconn wins. If the Gampel crowd is in high numbers and pumped up that might just be enough. If, for the tip, it is half empty I see it as a bad omen.
