When the 3 point shot was introduced into the game some time ago, my dad was incredibly vocal about how it would change the game and how it wasn't meant to be that way. He's been gone for some time now and I still agree with him on this point. If the three-shot did not exist the score would have been 80-75 in favor of UConn. The three has changed the complexion of play on the court and actually had the winning team lose in the score colume.

I agree with Jas, but you need to let go of the past. The 3 is here to stay whether good or bad, so enjoy it. If the women can make 3s, the guys surely should be able to also. This game was one of the sloppiest I've seen lately, but I'll take the win. Good going for hanging in there Huskies!

Any win is a good win. This game demonstrated heart, desire and some clutch play during critical stretches. Unfortunately, it displayed many weaknesses (often times hard to watch) that we may not always overcome.
Some very sloppy play that gave away far too many points. Adrian and Robinson should ever be involved in breaking the press. Paying attention and maintaining proper focus is perhaps all that is lacking.
Number 3 (Doug Wiggins) deserves a game ball for his energy and applied pressure that turned this game. Our guards need to apply defense to their skill-sets. This team has the makings to go far ..…….... if they can just raise their basketball I.Q.

Why was Belton allowed a "do over" on that free throw?

Hasn't the NCAA considered moving the 3-line back to NBA distance? I would support that.

Let's get our facts correct, please. Oscar Robertson was a 3-time player of the year at Cincinnati. He was the first player to achieve that. Michael O'Daniel, Oscar Robertson Media Ventures, www.thebigo.com .
