UCONN had better hope that WVA beats Providence because I'm not sure that UCONN can beat the Friars after losing badly on two occasions. If they play like they did against Cincy, then I agree with your assessment about their potential. I think ND could win it all this year riding on Harangody's back.

Let's hope Friars can knock off WVU and then throttle uconn AGAIN. Of course knowing that calhoun has taken the muzzle off of his big-talk do nothing players like price and adrien PC will have added incentive.

Please price, say something, predict a uconn blowout. You can talk, like Al-Amin's "shock the world" comment. But he backed it up. Of course everyone knows that price is no Al-Amin. Price couldn't carry his jock strap. Adrien and Price have won how many BE or NCAA tourney games, excluding the 2006 choke team? NONE. So for all the hype about this team they have done nothing except run off their mouths, and get arrested.

btw: uconn is worst team at ft% with a single digit lead or trailing in single digits with less than 3 minutes in game. it counts. In fact uconn shoots less than 50% in the final 2 minutes of games in which the lead is single digits. Now that's clutch.

PC may not go to any tournament but their year would be complete by beating the crap out of uconn, AGAIN.

Year would be complete? Lofty goals up there in Providence, huh? With aspirations like that by their fans no wonder they never win anything and continue with a coach who's taken them to the NCAA tourney 2 times in 12 years. Bravo!!!

WVU - 58, PROV - 53

That wraps up another great year for the Fiars! They beat Uconn twice and only lost by five in the opening round of the Big East Tournament. Not sure, but they may have even covered the spread! Another great sub 500 year for Friars, AGAIN!

Well, Providence runs a clean program for STUDENT-athletes. I'm embarrassed to be a UConn fan, with all the suspensions this year because of illegal drugs, drunk-driving, etc. They've behaved more like thugs than college students, IMHO.
