Just listened to Jim Calhoun and Kevin Ollie with Mike Francesa on our sister station WFAN. Admit it Husky Nation, isn’t it great to have the men still alive and kicking on March 26th.

Post season basketball is unlike figure skating or three meter diving. There are no style points, no one cares how you win, only if you win.

It’s finally here. Two years and five days after the UConn men’s last NCAA appearance, the Huskies are back in the tournament. Tonight, at the First Niagra Center in Buffalo, it’s UConn and St Joseph’s in second round East regional action.
