JOE D’S NOTEBOOK: Caught Up In Winter

Winter has hit the Carolinas and it isn’t pretty. Not winter like we have experienced over the last six weeks in Connecticut but enough snow and ice to make traveling a nightmare. The UConn Huskies got caught up in it on Tuesday.

JOE D’S NOTEBOOK: No Escape For The Huskies

There’s no escape for the UConn men. No escape from the cold… no escape from 9 PM starts… and, most importantly, seemingly no escape from the inconsistency that has plagued them this season.

JOE D’S NOTEBOOK: No Snow in New Orleans

What a shock, it’s Monday and it’s snowing. Well, there was no precipitation in New Orleans on Saturday, just a much needed win for the UConn Huskies,beating Tulane 62-53.

JOE D’S NOTEBOOK: Let’s Not Sugarcoat It

There’s no reason to try and sugarcoat what went on last night at Fifth Third Arena in Cincinnati. It was a dismal performance by the UConn Huskies and the 70-58 setback was not really indicative of how bad the defending national champions played.

JOE D’S NOTEBOOK: The Toughest Place To Play

For the third time this month, it’s the start of a two game road trip for the UConn men as they visit perhaps the toughest place to play in the AAC (next to Gampel of course)

JOE D’S NOTEBOOK: No Place Like Home

Be it ever so humble, there’s no place like home. The words of John Howard Payne ring true for the UConn men’s basketball team as they return to Gampel Pavilion tonight for the first time since December 5th to host UCF.

JOE D’S NOTEBOOK: Speed Bumps on the Path to Victory

Just when it looked like the UConn Huskies were about to go on a run, the type of winning streak we’ve seen so many times in the past, they hit a speed bump, a big speed bump in the form of a 66-58 loss at Tulsa on Tuesday Night.

JOE D’S NOTEBOOK: On the Road Again

For the second time in as many weeks, the UConn men are on a two city road trip, and unlike a week ago, the two sites are not separated by 2 1/2 hours. This week it’s Tulsa and Stanford, two outstanding tests.

JOE D’S NOTEBOOK

FRIDAY, DECEMBER 19, THE MORNING AFTER: The tenth chapter in the UConn-Duke Holy War was similar to the first nine, hard fought, competitive, emotional. And at the end of the night, the better team won. […]
