HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH

where are all the UConn bashers now? No where to be found. All the bashers on here are jealous, insignificant worthless no talent ass clowns.

Wheres all the people that were saying Calhoun couldn't coach nor recruit anymore? He knew exactly what he was getting when he recruited these players.

Dyson is turning into one of the most clutch players UConn has ever had. Hes awesome on offense, ridiculously clutch from the line, and an awesome defender.

Price- Unbelievably cool calm and collected point guard. Best 3 point shooter on the squad, makes BIG shots

Just beat the # 8 team in the nation 3000 + miles from campus.

LOSERS!
Go Huskies

Fun game! Why did Thabeet get a technical? Hanging on the rim? Saying a naughty word? Home-cooked officiating?

I hope Mike Anthony gives us the inside on why Calhoun gave Gavin Edwards so much playing time against the Zags. Was it a brilliant coaching move or just plain luck? And who did Edwards jump over in the usual rotation? Gutsy game Huskies!

Great game. UC showed character by coming back, but really exposed some glaring weaknesses (guarding the hot hand, free throw shooting, mental lapses). Nonetheless, this is an excellent game to build upon. Stanley Robinson is a major asset. Let's see if he will realize his potential and that his flashed of brilliance become the norm. Looking forward to G'town. thetruth, maybe it's time for you to find a place of your own and let Mom and Dad have some alone time.

Good comeback by UConn. Calhoun did a great 2nd half coaching job.
I still do not believe this is a Final Four team though. They do not have that consistent "goto" guy a la Ray Allen / Rip Hamilton, etc.
They are a decent team but no national champs this year.

Ucon basher here! Not hiding anywhere. Nice win against an ok team. Zags got beat by Arizona so lets not go crazy here. Same Ucon team as last year. Good guard play and overrated big men. No defense and streaky shooting. Get ready to see alot of zone in the big east! Easily will lose 5 or 6 in the big east, tope 20 talent but not top 2! Jimmy the rats whining and constant cursing at his players should bump you to about #15 by the end of the year. There is always another nc state/san diego/george mason with more heart ready to beat these clowns

Not a bad game, but they will definitely need to get more consistant for 40 minutes if they want to compete with UNC in March. Gonzaga is real good and I don't want UConn to have any part in playing them again this season. Austin Daye is a superstar in the making and once he fouled out, it was UConn's game. Great gutsy performance on the road at a non-neutral site. Hopefully this will be a good sign for the tourny. The Big East season is coming up and it's going to be crazy tough, not to mention the non-conference game against a much improved Michigan team. It should be an interesting season, but UNC is head and shoulders better right now.

Joe, what game were you watching. Huskies really shut them down at the end of the game with solid "D" play. UConn one this game without the best play of the "big" men. Zag's played a good game....A couple of real mental errors passing the ball. To criticize this team after this game is really lame.....The Big east better get ready to see UConn dominate.

Joe...what are you talking about? Yes the Zags lost to Arizona, however they are most certainly regarded as a final four contender and a top team in the nation. A lot of great teams loose a game or two to a not so great opponent UConn did not play a great game, Thabeet was a non factor, the Zags then pulled Adrien out onto the perimeter, Dyson left the game for a whille, freakin Gavin Edwards got minutes and the Huskies still won. This is a game they can build off of. They will losse 1-4 games this season, not 5 or 6 in the Big East alone. You are an idiot. You make it sound like UConn always chokes. They, nor any other team besides UCLA in the 70's, can win the NCAA's every year. Are you forgetting the 2 championships in the past 10 years? And the big men are overrated? Jeff Adrien has been one of the most consistent and solid performers in the big east since he was a freshman outplaying the likes of Josh Boone and Rudy Gay. He was the top player in the George Mason game in 2006. You are a joke. Back your statements up before you come on here trying to insight some commentary. You throw around insults like a child. Bring a real argument to the table then we will talk. Also, you all would be happy for the showing of UConn fans we got out in Chicago today to watch the game. We have a nice group of about 15 now. Go Huskies. We will be great come February/March.

"I still do not believe this is a Final Four team though. They do not have that consistent "goto" guy a la Ray Allen / Rip Hamilton, etc."

What are you talking about? Jerome Dyson has filled that role all season and he was clearly the best player on the court today. Looks like AJ Price might be joining him if he can build off of this performance and get back to the form he showed last season.

Great game! The Battle in Seattle adds yet another thrilling victory to UConn lore.

Any word on Ater Majok? Go Huskies!

they got a couple of Christmas miracles at the end of regulation. I wish they would realize they have to play tough the whole game! Need more of the infamous Uconn defense! But, they pulled it out in a tough game....kudos! I have to say that I am not thrilled with Thabeet, though. He played better last year. If he put as much energy into his game as he does chewing his gum, he'd be fabulous.

You're being serious? Did you watch the game?

Thabeet was in foul trouble so Edwards got more minutes.

I don't know if the refereeing was "home-cooked", but it sure looked amateurish all night long.

Good thing UConn's defense showed up at the end. As the game went on, Thabeet became more and more of a non-factor, and it was actually a blessing that he fouled out on that suspicious call. I had been hoping Calhoun wouldn't put him back in at the end, because the team was clicking at that point.

Solving the Zag's zone was good practice for what the Huskeys will be facing.

I was pleased to see Gavin step up. He'll be needed on some nights, and if he can do what he did today, UCONN will add a few extra wins.

Calhoun out coached Few; nuff said.

Price ruled and I hope he keeps it up thru the Big East season.

Calhoun out coached Coach Few - give Haney an assist.

Price was priceless, lets hope he keeps it up.

Good info as far as you go but had to go to Seattle Times for a box score and found not only that but much more. Gotta get this site up to date with the information you provide.
