Joe D’s Notebook
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.
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.
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.

We saw the Gutty Gritty Huskies return in a 63-59 win over Florida.
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. […]
