    End-of-season performance under Hurley

    Yep. We finished strong last year before the shutdown. Probably would have happened sooner this year if not for the injuries and pauses.

    OT: Home Generator

    Got a Generac about 2 years ago. Uses propane Very happy with it. Lost power for 5 days last year. Worked like a charm. Kicks on about 10 seconds after outage and I just went about my business. Also have a line connecting my tanks to my gas grill. Will never have to fill that little tank again...

    Time To Make A Statement

    Used to be only a game or two every year when I got angsty or nervous before a game and they were usually of the tournament or must win variety. Wouldn't call this "must win" necessarily but I woke up with that feeling today for the first time all year and the first time in several years. It's...

    Nova getting annihilated by Butler

    That was an "interesting" flop call from the refs.

    Nova getting annihilated by Butler

    This league...not too many free lunches or days off. Can't wait for the tourney at MSG.

    This team will never take the next step with Hurley as coach

    Yep. People don't realize how far in the hopper this program was. Also don't realize that some unfortunate things happen along the way that slow down progress. It's like tantrum central around here everytime we lose.

    This team will never take the next step with Hurley as coach

    If we beat Nova this thread doesn't exist. Praise for everyone. The board would have been pure nirvana. We lose to a top 10 team on the road with a veteran hall of fame level coach while only recently getting a not yet in game shape Bouk back and the sky is falling and UConn will never be...

    Great. Now an already awful thread is a spelling bee.

    This team will never take the next step with Hurley as coach

    If Bouk, Akok, AJax were healthy all year and it was a normal college bball season you would have a better case...our least talented players are upperclassmen. Our 2 most talented sophomores have been hurt for most/all year. We also have struggled at times with free throws, point guard play, and...

    Game Strategy

    Our upperclassmen on those teams weren't what they are on this this team, especially at point guard. Also, having the best players doesn't ALWAYS make you the best team but it's the leading reason. 2011 and 2014 are the exception not the rule. Like Valvanos NC St team and Rollies Nova team...

    Are you worried about Akok?

    He comes on the court full of piss and vinegar and after he attempts to block a shot he comes up slightly gimpy. Has happened a couple games now. Not all the way back and he clearly has some trust issues in the injury and for good reason. Injuries like that are both mental and physical and he's...

    Disappointed

    Yep. His ball hand is exposed dribbling right into a second collapsing defender. You could see it coming ahead of time. Surprised he cant anticipate it. It's like his move is predetermined.

    Need more high level offensive talent

    I'm hoping and gjessing foul trouble had something to do with the minutes. At the end you are just hoping for a couple 3's. Unfortunately our upperclassmen are our least talented players.

    Disappointed

    Bouk needs to stop dribbling into double teams and collapsing zones.

    Game Strategy

    He has had the better team ever time they played. The first 2 times it wasn't even close. Give it time.

    Game Strategy

    Whaley's shooting touch has completely left him. It's like he took a sabatical and joined the masons union. Maybe we dreamt it all.

    Hate to do this

    And that's Hurleys fault how? Did he trip Bouk and kick Akok in the shin? We are all frustrated but take a lap and burn it off or something.

    2022 Recruiting: Clingan Taking His Time with Recruiting Process (Syracuse on SI)

    I hope he comes here. I don't care if he's dunking on toddlers on a Fisher Price hoop. Kid is clearly legit.

    ?Akok?

    Saw a quote on Twitter that Akok was a bit sore after Saturday. Pair that with the above quote about going a bit too hard in practice and not feeling great pregame and that pretty much answers it. Akok goes so darn hard that the staff and trainer may have to hold him back a bit for his own good.

    RJ Cole Appreciation Thread

    Cole is one of the few guys on the team that can get buckets and hunts his shot/plays with offensive aggressiveness. Without Bouk he is large. His best game couldn't have come at a better and more important time.
  22. UCfor3

    So nice to see Akok

    Guy plays with such hustle and joy. Impossible to not love and cheer for him. He embodies UConn in the best possible way. He tears past everyone running up and down the court. Just a refreshing vision. The team fed off him when they needed it most. Hope he stays healthy the rest of the way. A...

    We Look Different.... Significantly Different

    It will be equally amazing how the rhetoric will pull a 180 and go full crazy again if we lose our next game, especially if Bouk is still AWOL.

    OT: Off topic-Update on my wife.

    So sorry for your loss. Condolences to you and your family. RIP

    COLE in over his head

    We need both. Neither has been consistent enough to just say the other should just step aside. From game to game playing time will be given to the one playing better that particular day. If someone for a long stretch proves they should be the man then even better. Regardless, good teams need 2...

    Hurley Costs Us Another Game. Will the reporters ask some tough questions?

    There are no acceptable losses? We havent earned that kind of entitlement. We are not the Lakers. We are a fringe top 25 team playing without one of the best players in the country coming off our 3rd layoff. We played a solid team that has played 18 games to date. Seton Hall played really well...

    That's a Wrap

    Dont disagree. Have to use timeouts and fouls to go offense/defense there though. He shouldnt be in when we are trying to press and force turnovers.

    Hurley Costs Us Another Game. Will the reporters ask some tough questions?

    The players have something to do with that as well. Yeah, he can call a timeout and should but that doesn't guarantee an immediate turnaround. He's far from perfect but the blame game is strong here. Missing our all american, Ajax, Akok, 3 covid layoffs, mssed foul shots and bad defense have...

    That's a Wrap

    Right now Polley is not offering much. Easy to defend. Perhaps when Bouk comes back he will draw a lot of the D's attention and free him up for a few open looks off the bench. Until then...

    Hurley Costs Us Another Game. Will the reporters ask some tough questions?

    We gave up 80 points without our best scorer in Bouk. Not exactly a winning formula. Normally 73 is enough for us to win with the D we usually play. Just couldn't get any key stops under 10 minutes. Seton Hall just scores the ball much easier than us. Have more consistent options.

    We need both. Less Adams.

    Drummond to the Nets?

    Or maybe not everything needs to be argued? If people only weighed in on what they were truly informed on this board would have like 3 posts.
