They have beaten 3 of these teams and all by 11 pts coincidentally. Yes they are the favorite but these teams have all proved they can play with the Huskies.


Guess I'm not sure why you dismissed Maryland, who is in their bracket and only lost by 6 points.


Ok, missed Maryland , my bad. Guess my point is this UConn team has destroyed lesser opponents but there are teams who have played with them, (like the above 5 teams) this year and seeing how young UConn is I think it is very possible they don't win it all.


I agree. I have a strange suspicion that they will get beat somewhere along the line this year. If they don't, they may not lose again for a couple of years as they have some tremendous recruits coming in again next year. It is quite something what Geno has built in Storrs.

I think Geno wants to win 200 in a row.. no mercy. I think they roll this tourney with a plethora of double digit wins.

There's no doubt in my mind that Maine would have lost by less than 61 points. :oops:

Didn't watch the Conn-Albany game. Did Geno intentionally run-it-up on poor Albany?

Nope. They are just that "good", and really just reflect how far ahead the top 5-10 are over all the rest. It's why WBB is not all that much fun to watch, "most" of the time. zzzzzzz....... :cry:

TAL1957: Thank you. Hard not to score a lot of points when you have to shoot every 30 second possession with the shot clock. 116 points, they may well wish they had some of those points later in the possible 5 tournament games instead of wasting them on Albany.

Sometimes when you waste the points like wasting water from the well, when you go to the well for more points or more water, you don't have them when you need them becasue you wasted them when you didn't need too.

"Just sayin".
