It's weird how bad news often begets good news. Dyson's suspension has made Austrie and starter, and the kid is blossoming before our eyes. If he can handle the ball and drop some 3s like yesterday, it will bode well for UConn.

Price is money. Great to watch him. Yes, it was an ugly win, but all wins look pretty in the rear view mirror (and come tournament time).

Syracuse is no pushover (in case you didn't know).

Syracuse plays it's starters for 38 minutes a game, get them running and pound the inside, result is dead legs and lots of fouls, and a UConn win.

I like how this team is responding lately. They took a punch and punched back. They could have easily fallen apart but instead showed the measure of their manhood and played with heart and fortitude. Dyson could be back for March madness and that could bode well for this team too. Syracuse has us evenly matched we can beat them if our big men play smart and try to get open in the zone. They can allow the smaller shooters to penetrate the zone and get a shot off a screen. Syracuse will definitely scratch and claw to hold a piece of third place. Notre Dame will have three losses when they play us. That will be payback time in a big way then things get interesting. I do think UCONN can contest for the Big East title and will be able to beat Georgetown when the time comes. This team has grown enormously this year and I am very happy for them and the coaches that have stuck with them through a tough stretch. Go Huskies keep rolling!

I believe the suspensions have forced AJ Price to become the leader he needed to be. I had my doubts, but the old man knew the kid was special all long. Still can't bear to watch Adrien, sorry Rob in Raleigh...

We are seeing the maturation of a young team, and each player is finding his role. The suspensions have galvanized the team. AJ has finally accepted his role as leader of this team. I also think Coach has settled on a more consistent rotation. No longer are we seeing such a quick hook.

Thabeet's improvement is glaring. He still needs to develop stronger hands. Too many balls get knocked away from him. But I must commend him on his free throw shooting. His percentage is up over 20% from last season. He also does not commit as many fouls.

The team still lacks a consistent outside shooter. Austrie, Price and Wiggins can make some threes, but none is as accurate as will be needed to make a long post-season run. I believe this team will be a 7 or 8 seed and not make it through the first weekend of the NCAA tournament. They do not defend on the perimeter as well as they will need to and are in danger of getting beaten by a good three-point shooting team.

Next season the Huskies will be an elite eight team.

At the midpoint of the Big East regular season schedule, the Huskies are in pretty good shape. The only away game against a team with a winning conference record is Syracuse (5-4) Wednesday. Their home games are against Notre Dame (5-2), DePaul (4-4), West Virginia (4-4) and Cincy (5-4).

Congrats to the Huskies, wow, what a great job the team and coaching staff have done!
One problem, please, please, the players have to learn to keep their mouths shut, wished AJ Price, great as he is, had not mentioned that he thought Dyson hurt the team; Dyson is a gifted player, he will be back;;;;why not try to get along.....
