I was just thinking about opening dude, good call. Watch out for Kemba Walker baby. He got one heck of an early start to the season. Huskies just beat # 2 Michigan state at the Maui Invitational.

^^That was a very good game by UConn. Michigan State has looked pretty overrated so far in my opinion. There are definitely better teams then them so far. We got a tough schedule ahead of us. We got Michigan, then the winner of GT/UTEP, N.C. State, and then Michigan State.

Kemba was on fire yesterday. 4 back to back games with 30+ points. I dont think any player has done that this year so early on in the season.

^^UConn absolutely smoked Kentucky. Doesn't look like their rebuilding but rather reloading! Kemba has looked a very potent scorer so far. They look like they can be 1 of the top BE teams if they keep it up.

Not that anyone cares but the 90 game winning streak by the lady huskies has come to an end. Stanford the same team that beat them last time 2 years ago.

I'm going to the Cuse/St. John's game tomorrow. Should be a very good game since St. John's has improved a lot. Hope the boys don't take them lightly and come out comfortably.

Tough lost for your orange tonight Tiger444. That's was a great comeback after that 19-0 run by Pitt. Syracuse had plenty of chances but they just couldn't finish them. I'm def putting Pitt in my final 4.

To be honest I was pretty happy even though we lost. Pitt looks like a very very strong team and is nearly impossible to beat at home. They usually beat us since their a physical team. I'm confident that we'll beat Villanova this Saturday since its at home. Congratz to UConn for a great win against Nova. It looked like you guys were hitting a slump after the ND game but you guys have bounced back. Kemba has just been a monster this year. Seems like this year's team is a lot more humble and hard working. Last year's team was full of talent but was too egoistic and lazy.

I don't know man. We just are not looking good. Scoop has been way too inconsistent which has hurt us. He really needs to step it up since he's 1 of our leaders. Also we need more support underneath for Jackson. Fab has been a bust. Our zone hasn't been very effective which is always our key. If our defense steps up we should be able to bounce back. With games on the road against Marquette and UConn, things are not gonna get any easier so we have to correct our mistakes and quick.

Scorer don't have a place unless he has a decent defense. Offense gets the glory but defense wins championships!! Few exceptions are there but very rare!! Any sports.

When Kevin Durant says he is the best scorer in the world then he must have some game.

I'm going to the Conn vs. Louisville game on Saturday. Should be a good game, hoping for a Kemba special. I really wanted to go to the Syracuse game but too lazy to drive down to XL Center.

Mijan bhai my knowledge in this matter is extremely feeble. Just caught it on headlines and I think people are too much hyping him up. It will surely get to his head.

Relax he's a mormon

And he's been doing his thing all season, he's had the espn hype Machine for a Month now and he's steped his game up to a another level.

Similar to Steph Curry

Have fun bro. It should be a good game. Louisville's a decent team but I don't see you guys losing to them. And don't bother going to the Cuse game. You wouldn't want to see your Huskies getting smashed would you? :lol:

What a week. BD beating ENG and UCONN winning the big east championship. By far the best week of this year for me. Loving every moment of it.

Congrats to Huskie fans!! Calhoun did it again. 16-0 in knockout phase this year. They are the #1 team in my book.

^^ Thanks Tiger's_Eye :)

what makes UCONN so good: I feel this is their secret:

They are exceptionally good at recruiting players who have a lot of potential to improve. you know: I think this is why UCONN consistently produce guys like Kemba Walker, Hasheem Thabeet, Rudy Gay, Ray Allen, Emeka Okafor and many more! I do not think there has been any college or university that has been so successful at producing NBA class players consistently. they start off as Bench warmers and after one summer of hard work and training => BOOM! they become really good. This is why I went so crazy in supporting IAN PONT, former Bangladeshi Bowling coach. Because i felt that we have someone who can do just that!

a very very close friend of mine(he is Bengali) was considered for the UCONN Men's basketballl team, he didn't get accepted because he is too short, plus they were not looking for Point Guards at that time. I am not exaggerating but This friend of mine can make three pointers at will :D you just have to see it to believe me!

We would have a crazy team next year if Kemba stayed. But with Lamb Napier Roscoe and Oriakhi I think we will still have a pretty good team next year.

I'm so happy that we won the title while I was in school, best college memory ever! What a year, specially considering we were number 10 in the big east pre season poll and we finished 9-9 in the season. People will say we had an easy road to the championship but at the end we are the champions and that's all it matters.
