First off, it’s good to be back at it with year #25 calling UConn football and basketball. The summer was a great one but it’s time to get back to work.
And it started Thursday night with a closer than anyone expected win over Maine. First off, let’s give the Black Bears credit. First year head coach Joe Harasymiak had his team ready to play and they executed their game plan to near perfection. They put pressure on Bryant Shirreffs ,shut down Arkiel Newsome and quarterback Dan Collins was given all day to throw the ball.
Joe D’Ambrosio is out at the Kevin Ollie Charity Golf Classic at Foxwoods Resort Casino and Lake of Isles. Here he is with Coach Ollie himself.
Joe D & Casey Cochran discuss the ex-UConn QB’s log entry into the Player’s Tribune about his life as a football player, the concussions suffered throughout his playing career and his daily battles with depression in a VERY powerful and emotional interview…
For all but one team in the NCAA tournament, the season ends with disappointment. The end for the UConn Huskies came Saturday night in Des Moines when they were knocked out by Kansas 73-61 in Round Two of the South Region.
The motto of the NCAA tournament is survive and advance. That is exactly what the UConn Huskies did Thursday afternoon in round one of the South Region against Colorado.
Greetings from the heart of the Corn Belt. It may not be at the top of anyone’s list as a vacation destination but for eight college basketball teams, including UConn, there is no place they’d rather be.
23 miles north of Walt Disney World, the Amway Center is the new Magic Kingdom for Husky Nation. That’s where the 2016 UConn men punched their ticket for the NCAA tournament with three wins in three days at the American Athletic Conference Basketball Tournament.
It’s not an understatement or an exaggeration to say that today’s UConn-Cincinnati game in the quarterfinals of the AAC tournament is THE MOST IMPORTANT game in the country when it comes to NCAA tournament hopes.
It’s been a struggle for D-Ham at times this season and maybe that time on the bench was the kick start he needed. Time will tell but Husky fans hope it to be the case. Because make no mistake, UConn needs Hamilton at his best to make any sort of post season run.
I didn’t know what to expect in Tampa. The UConn men played so poorly in Cincinnati , I didn’t know if there would be a hangover. And watching USF tear up Memphis, I thought the Bulls would present a stiff challenge. Wrong , wrong , wrong.
