Pretty sure I’m seeing an uglier game so far..
A little perspective- we played 2 of the top 5 defenses in the country back to back. They make every team look mediocre and force a lot of turnovers and mistakes. This is a good team that should be in every game and will find ways to win most of them.Yesterday I thought we were a good team that had a bad game against MSU. Now I'm worried we're a mediocre team that had a good game against Auburn. Way too many mistakes all around. Everyone involved with this team has to do better.
Undermanned?? Auburn was missing one of their best players and VCU was missing two. That narrative doesn’t hold up.People need to relax. We played 3 games in 48 hours and the first game went to double overtime. We were undermanned yesterday and gassed today. Under normal circumstances and rest we beat Mich State and destroy VCU. The scheduling of this tournament made no sense and UConn was probably impacted more than anyone. It will be ok. We played as bad as we could today and still won. We are a good team.
Having been here all 3 times we were here I like this tournament. Would like to win it though. All good teams. No idea what your talking about.Cole and Whaley saved us. Hurley has so much to work on. Too many things to list. Hurley needs to give the freshmen minutes going forward. They're not deep right now and they're really not deep in the backcourt. Too much burden is being placed on Cole, it simply can't continue like this. Diggins needs minutes.
Ugly as hell but still went 2-1. Never want UConn in this event again, never want to see the Bahamas again, and most of all never want to see these refs again. When refs are that inept I start to question if they're dirty.
We give our opponents credit all the time. It's a yearly theme early. Remember St. Joseph's 2 years ago. We said the same thing about them, strong program, they played hard, etc. They went on to win 5 more games.it’s not popular to give the other team any credit here
You mean if we shot 3’s like we did against Auburn the other 2 days we wouldn’t be having these conversations, because honestly we pretty much played the same all 3 games.it wasn't a perfect game, but if we played like we did against Auburn the other 2 days we wouldn't be having these conversations. But yeah, not being able to hold onto leads is really worrisome.

We‘re just not offensively talented, I’m not sure why it’s hard for people to grasp that. It’s the same group of players who scored 50/60 ppg against tournament teams last year with Bouknight on the roster.
Personally I think people should be happy with the results of this tournament. We pulled out a once in 5 years performance from 3 against Auburn (literally, the last time we shot that percentage on at least 20 attempts was Jan 2017). That is going to be an amazing win come March.
14 points in 5 minutes is on pace for 102 points over the course of a whole game. Not badI haven't read through all of the threads, but one thing I haven't noticed anyone posted yet:
UConn's 70 points is the most scored against VCU this season.
I get it, it was an overtime game, and yes, they scored 14 points in overtime, but, UConn scored 44 points in the last 25 minutes of the game, which is pretty darn good against the 4th best defense in the country.
