well how nice . The men are in the final four for the third time!! The women have been there that that they have lost track of them. Could it be the difference in the coaches is one of them really worth that much more than the other. when the men get as good as the women then you can give them the publicity

This team has progressed so much and has endured so much, they deserve their success. I'm extremely proud and will be regardless what happens in Detroit.

Jeff Adrien after a home loss during his sophmore season and the crowd booing asked us for patience. Craig Austrie has been in the staring line up, out for Marcus Williams, in again, ou, in, and for the sweet 16 and for UConn to advance "scoring required" and Craig came through like the first halves played by both Brown and Moore in past championship games. A.J. has had 4 players worth of adversity and he has never ducked, A.J. Price will not duck and will not quit!

John Reynolds,

Women's basketball is a joke. There are a only a few good teams with all the recruits. It is so bad, that NCCA games are played in the first 4 rounds some years in Connecticut because they are one of a few programs that has enough fans that will show up. There were sites this year with about 1000 people there. Of course, recruits go to Connecticut because we our one of a few states that cares about the achievements in women's basketball. Further, when a women's program get a player they get them for four years. Thus Gino has talented recruits that are also Srs. But, since in the history of men's college basketball there are no coaches that match Gino and Pat since when John Wooden got all the recruits (when they couldn't play as freshmen or dunk).

Drop dead. There are only 2 to 3 good women's teams. Men's basketball is on a higher level. This is a great day for Connecticut. Kudos to Coach Calhoun, he makes Pomfret proud.

Get over it. Don't worry, there is more to do in Ohio. Once, the negative crowd shuts the UConn hoops program down, Connecticut can become the senior citizen, overpriced, over taxed state that you want.

Congratulations to the Huskies. They adapted and found a way to win with Plan B. Now, let's hope that JC can keep Hash in the lane on D so we can stick with Plan A and win this thing.

The kids can forestall those who'd enjoy sullying JC's legacy because of an officious investigation of an irrelevant player. Instead, they can weave him a richly-deserved third national championship.

It was a tremendous weekend. Here's a toast to lowering the curtain with a pair of Geno specials.

Go Huskies!

Congratulations to all the players and coaches on their advancement to the Final Four.

Best wishes for a successful Final Four and wouldn't it be great if Coach Calhoun could win a third national title and, perhaps, go out on a high note.

Care to explain what you're implying, please? If the player wearing a suit had been Ed Nelson or Jake Voskuhl would you have made that comment?

This team was prepared for the kind of pesky defense that Mizzou dished out by the Big East. This league has been a monster this year and has given the Huskies toe toughening they needed to compete as this level. Mizzou you played well but I don't think you knew what you were getting into. This team will not be intimidated by the likes of the big twelve. They know they have bigger fish to fry! Uconn is a class program and will always be a class program because they know how to play the game they know how to compete at the highest level and will not quit.
This team has grown up before our eyes they have had to deal with many losses on many levels but yet they continued on and played their game. This team is family and you can see how they celebrated after the win, they are true brothers and there is no greater comfort then going into war with your brother by your side! I will predict now that Uconn will be in the final game and North Carolina will not. I can't predict who will when the final game but I know Uconn will play in it. All the best the coaching staff and thanks for the UCONN shirt! Go Huskies!

Speaking of "The Grade", I think you need to go back to school and learn how to spell!
