Some thoughts on the St John’s game:
- A few days off sure makes a world of difference.
- This was the 1st of 4 road games for UConn. While none of these opponents will challenge the Huskies, UConn needs to use these games to clean up their execution, firm up the rotation and build to the conference tournament and Big Dance.
- Not sure just how to characterize UConn’s offense at the start of games, but man do these Huskies play some tough defense, and right now that defense is giving UConn opponents nightmares. Correa, St John’s top player, went 1/10 with 4 TO's.
- If Liv can knock down mid-range shots and an occasional 3, like she did tonight, it takes UConn to another level, opening the lane for Christyn, Paige, E, Aubrey & Aaliyah.
- Christyn passed up two shots to start the game, but once she started shooting and making shots, she transformed into a scoring machine. We need to see more of that Christyn Williams.
- In addition to everything else she does, Paige is unbelievably efficient. Tonight she had 20 points on 10 shots with 9 assists and only 1 turnover. I suppose you can make a case for someone else as the NPOY, but I certainly won't.
