Joe D’s Notebook: The End Of The Road

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.

Joe D’s Notebook: The Lowdown From Des Moines

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.

Joe D’s Notebook: The Marathon Ends, The Sprint Begins

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.

Joe D’s Notebook: Running Over The Bulls

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.

Joe D’s Notebook: Random Thoughts

So the big four game stretch is over for the UConn Men. Two wins, both at home, two losses, both on the road. Now time for some thoughts.

Joe D’s Notebook: No DeJa Vu

The Huskies played good, sometimes great basketball for the majority of both games. But not for a full 40 minutes, not even for 35.

It looked for the longest time on Thursday night that the UConn men would get their biggest four game stretch of the season off to a successful start. But then, it changed and in the end, it was a demoralizing 63-58 loss.
