    Oh, that's fun over there! This comment stood out:

    "The more I think about it being in a loser AAC conference makes our players feel like losers. I believe being in the Big East will bring out the UConn pride in our team!"

    I guess they already felt like losers before the game was over. We just reinforced the feeling.

    I don’t want my doctor to know what my blood pressure was today.

    Why in the hell do you NOT foul up 3 in the situation we were in???? I don’t make $3.5 million per year but I can’t believe that decision. At the worst the other team scores two and you get the ball back, and they foul you.

    Well, now the freshmen know how hard it is to win a conference game on the road.

    I hope our fans understand how instrumental UConn was to us joining the AAC. No bad blood from me.

    No doubt some in game mistakes by players and coaches. It does happen, and when it does, on the road, it usually means a loss.

    BUT, the preparation was there that forged a big lead that kept it a tie until they could find a way.

    Both teams returned 3 starters from last year's game in Storrs. WSU Burton, Stevenson, Echenique & UCONN Gilbert, Vital, Carlton. All Husky players more highly regarded recruits.

    My point is pretty much the same teams matched up again. Except UCONN added 3 top 100 recruits vs our regular guys. And we go from losing by 20 and not being competitive to winning and probably should have won by 10 or more despite a tough whistle.

    Gregg gets credit for that. We have winners all over this program. And UCONN can eat a dick at McDonalds with all their priceless recruits in the Bleast. This is a man's conference and the men walked out of Storrs with the DUB.
    Doc,
    With ya here.
    I've heard about TE's work ethic - conditioning must be high on his list too. His non-stop contesting each pass and face up defense was wearing me out just watching. Then his take and drive to the basket at the start of 2nd OT (with the foul) was big boi material. He is just a dude, period.
    GS struggled today but handled the ball well - until UCONN went to the trap press. It clearly caught him off guard and never adjusted. He clearly wasn't figuring it out. This is where HCGM needed to pull his Frosh and provide guidance.
    This was the most I've seen JE play and in long stretches. I would say he has majorly improved his conditioning!
    First time this year that ES looked tired towards the end. I can understand, but just not used to seeing.
    If JB was 3-4" taller, scary thought. Then again, they probably don't get him out of NC.
    DD had a totally different look and feel today. He looked like... well, like last year. They don't win without him today. One thing he does that never shows in box score is the number of tips off missed shots to fellow players. I know the bench people track it, but those are winning type of plays.
    That was a tough environment to play and win today. The floor sucked, it was UCONN's Super Bowl and they have some big time athletes.
    This is one 'W' that will look even better come March!

    That is all.

    I'm sure half of them were from other schools hoping we would meltdown with a meltdown loss. Since it doesn't happen too often.

    Sorry losers.

    Never fear, the road warrior fearless Shockers were there. In regulation. the clock wanted to be our very best friend, but no way. We made the clock their best friend ever with an unusual amount of turnovers and lots of fouls on us to stop the clock. What a game though!!! We found a way with lots of mental errors to still win. TE got us off on the right path to start the double OT. UCONN is talented enough to keep winning home games. I wished we got them at home this Season since they are bailing out. Burton, JE, ES, And DD had big moments for us. We the SN faithful were waiting for DD to have a coming out game. He did today and we will take this road win that some of our foes will not earn. One at a time we can chip away and have a very nice Conference finish this very year.

    Houston couldn’t do it, SMU couldn’t do it, the Shockers went on the road and won this weekend. Cincinnati did too and could’ve been tied for first place if Shockers didn’t grit this one out.

    We also guarded the driver in the lane and left a guy wide open on the perimeter. Head scratcher.

    Sherfield was great. He didn't need to come out of the game, he needed to be standing at the FT line. They couldn't take the ball from him without tackling. Also a case of being willing to lose a battle and win a war. Today we won the battle as well. Who you gonna put in? Fernandes? Errbody else had 12 fouls.

    Calling timeouts also a terrible idea. UConn had 4 dudes. They were exhausted, despite 14 free timeouts for reviews and to clean up their ****ing hockey rink.

    I thought it was funny. Jamie took his guy with a right hand hook 3 times and Lappas kept on ranting to take it away and then he went to a left handed hook and Lappas didn’t mention it. LOL

    Today wasnt Marshalls best days. Especially at the end of regulation.

    He is human. It happens.

    Yea Hurley had no reason to ***** they shot over 40 free throws and out scored us by 10 at the line. It was a physical game with some bad calls on both teams but they got a majority of the calls
