Austrie's offensive non performance lately is very baffling. They need him to bang down the threes to open up the inside. Good luck to the Huskies!

I think there are what, 340 or so, other teams that would love to be #3 this time of year.

True, that A.J. has to be a important option offensively in the tournament. But, if UConn is going to get past Pitt,(assuming that both teams win their quarterfinal round games) then Jeff Adrien has to show up and be an important factor in getting UConn to the Big East championship game, at least.
So far, in two losses to the Panthers back in Feb. and last weekend, Adrien has disappeared; offensively, defensively, and on the boards. Hasheem cannot be the only big man option when UConn is able to attack the basket down low against Pitt. Adrien has to contribute.
In what could be considered a key strategy to helping UConn emerge victorious: in Pitt losses this season, Blair has often gotten into foul trouble, enabling opposing teams to attack the Panthers in the paint. Having Blair sit on the bench next to his coach for key moments in the game, would greatly aid in the Huskies taking down Pitt. Adrien, in addition to Thabeet can be key towards making this happen. But, Jeff has to show up in the Fri. night semi-final game. He can't be a member of the Witness Protection Program - where he completely disappears for the entire game. Jeff, is a senior and one of the team captains on this year's squad. He's got to somehow impose his will in the game, and be a key factor!

It might not be a bad idea for Calhoun and co. to watch tape on providence vs. pitt. From what I understand, foul trouble was PC's biggest ally. They also need an answer to Sam Young. Sticks should be able to guard him, but instead ends up in the air on every ball fake.
great year

Rich,

You are right the three biggest problems in the Pitt game were in order

1. Sam Young-I said since the first game that Uconn cannot guard him in man! Robinson is not a good defender and Adrian cannot guard a really big guard (that is what Young is). PLAY A ZONE YOU HAVE THE BEST SHOOT BLOCKER IN THE COUNTRY AND QUICK GUARDS.

2. Craig Austre- This guy never could score off (maybe one floater a game) the dribble and can't create off the dribble for others. His three now is gone. Put in Haralson and let him hit a few shots.

3. FREE THROWS-Enough said. You don't reward quickness to the hole and size if you can't actually make free throws.

I am a UCONN fan. They are doing fine, but they slipped from number one to number three in the rankings, since losing to Pitt. Don't you follow the news?

PS: I'm not a fan that slips into a panic every time UCONN loses a game, like some people. I think the rankings are a joke. So, when I cheer, "We're number three", I'm being sarcastic.

I follow the "STATS" Cybil, that's THREE, count them THREE NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS !!!!!!!!! How many does your Pitt have?.........You should follow the "STATS" instead of the "voices", if you want to sound like "less" of a fool than you do. Just a thought..........

Not sure I follow the logic "Cybil", but no matter "whose" laptop I use the tally still reads UCONN 3 Natl Titles, Pitt (YOUR TEAM) 0 Natl Titles. Don't forget the "MEDS"!!!!!
