I realize that this board is primarily devoted to men's basketball. And that we are all "bummed" that the season ended other than what we wished.
In an effort to help get over our malaise, take a look at the overall sport's program this past weekend. Our lady's basketball team won, both men and women's tennis teams won as did both lacrosse teams. Both golf teams held their own in miserable weather. Several track and field athletes set new Duke and personal records. Beca Ward won another NCAA championship. Over the last week, swimmers and divers either placed in the top ten or won their individual championships. Baseball lost a close one, but is having a good season. And it sounded as if the Spring Practice football game went well.
Bottom line, I feel good about our various programs and am very proud of all our athletes and coaches.
Looking forward to shocking UConn in a few days.
The basketball season isn't over for me. UConn had a tough game vs. Georgetown and showed that they definitely aren't invincible.
I firmly believe we are a better team than G-town.
Come on Blue Devils!!

Good luck to the woman's team!
A movie is not about what it's about; it's about how it's about it.

As for the women, they are clearly doing us proud. They played a great game today - watched it on ESPN. It isn't like U-Con is invincible, as they demonstrated by having to come back vs the lower-seeded Georgetown team today. This has the feel of the Miracle of Ice Gold Medal US hockey team 30 years ago... losing badly (by 7 I think) to the Russians in a "friendly" a few days before the Olympics began, then coming back to make the "Miracle on Ice" and win the Gold.
Take it to 'em ladies!!!
But they can still be offensively challenged at times, and UConn, while not as dominant as last year, is a very strong and very well coached team. The Lady Blue Devils have their work cut out for them.
I hope they have a great game and win--but there will be no shame in not winning this one as long as they go down swinging.
