Uh-oh. An athletic speedy team gives UCONN fits. Our 7 foot 3 center can not hold onto the ball and score inside. Our outside shooting can not open up the zone defense. When we get to Big East competition we will fall like a rock in the ratings. We will finish fourth in the Big East and might make it to the Sweet 16. Sorry but that is the harsh reality.

UConnivct basketball is a JOKE. Zero tradition. Zero future. A coach who condones criminal behavior. DUKE and UNC-CHAPEL HILL are true, proud, and honest basketball programs. Get out of Connecticut and come watch real college basketball in the Mecca...North Carolina. See y'all in March!!
You gave your troll-ness away by naming Duke AND UNC.

Any fan of Duke or UNC hates the other team with a passion.

Keep trying, young Paduan.

Gosh, Minnesota Fan, how DARE you speak negatively of Connecticut's ONLY diversion from the misery that IS that horrid state? While I happen to agree with your prediction, I must warn you to brace yourself for the many Constitution State Kool-Aid sippers that will gallantly defend their UConnvicts and their trusty warden Calhoun. Oh, and by the way, UConnvict is a total joke to REAL hoop fans. Anybody plead AR lately in Rockville Superior Court??? Oh, and Caron Butler is a convicted felon.
UNC and Duke are the most overrated teams, every single year the media flocks to all the "white" players they think are good that end up sucking in the NBA,

For all the taunting, Triangle Hoop makes some good points - namely, the loss of respect (on a national level) for UConn Men. The Big Ten & ACC are both powerhouses this year. Wish Coach Calhoun wouldn't have caved to pressure - so much like the movie "Blue Chips" it's scary!!
The UConn Women are a GREAT story at least!!!
