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: The One That Said ‘Duke’

Let’s not kid anyone Husky Nation, when the 14-15 schedule came out, one game drew everyone’s attention. It was the one that said DUKE. Well, it’s time for the Huskies and Blue Devils to renew their rivalry for the first time since November of 2009.
