Joe D’s Notebook
SUNDAY NIGHT, MARCH 30- Use any descriptive adjective to refer to what the UConn men have done in the past 48 hours at Madison Square Garden and it will still be an understatement of what […]
The time for talk has ended. Tonight at 7:27, the pre game analysis will be rendered as useless as mock drafts and five day forecasts. When UConn and Iowa State take the floor at Madison Square Garden, one team will be headed to the Elite Eight and one to the off season.
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.
UConn had sent the rather loud partisans out into the Mid-South night, disillusioned by their Memphis Tigers being blown out of the water by the Huskies.
Welcome back to the post season UConn fans. Isn’t it great?
It’s less than a day since the regular season finale for the UConn men’s basketball team and I am still hard pressed to describe what took place yesterday at the House of Horrors known as the KFC Yum!Center in Louisville.
For whatever reason, Senior Night for the UConn Men hasn’t had the same emotional tug as it has for the Women. The main reason is probably that most of the time, the best men’s players leave before they become seniors, an option not available to the women.
Lo and behold,it’s the final week of the regular season. Isn’t it great to be a UConn basketball fan and know that unlike last season, there is life beyond the final game. But first things first, a quick recap and some reflections.
