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.

JOE D’S NOTEBOOK February 25th

Greetings from Bradley International before we fly to Tampa thru Atlanta for tomorrow night’s game with USF. It’s hard to believe that we are into the final two weeks of the regular season but it’s not the final two weeks like last season.

Late night in Orlando after UConn got back on track with a 75-55 win at Central Florida. It was an interesting night to be sure at CFE Arena on the UCF campus.

Let’s just start here. The two sophomores who are healthy and playing for UConn are good….No, really good…And they played a large role in the Top Ranked Huskies 17 point win over Louisville at a sold-out crowd at Gampel Pavilion.
