No problem. Yeah this game is huge. A win against the Cards, hopefully, can get our program right back in the thick of things.

Half court offense = 0 , really.
The only way to win this game, it's to getting good transitions specially with a very fast guy like Boatright .. the best plays were that.

I would like to see Drummond getting more touches, like Oriakhi had this last minutes.

Our offense is stalling. Lamb lacks confidence in his shot for some reason. At least Boatright is doing something.

Play without FEAR!!!! Come on, Huskies!!!

Yeah. Drummond should be making a presence on the offensive end. At the defensive end, they are changing some looks by the Cards. He just has to get more active on the offensive end.

UConn (men's basketball) has been barred from playing in the 2013 Tournament because of bad APR scores. The NCAA has made an example out of the Connecticut Huskies men’s basketball team. UConn tried to penalize themselves by proposing alternate penalties, including playing a shorter schedule next season, forfeiting the revenue awarded to the Big East for participating in the 2013 tournament, and banning Jim Calhoun from meeting off-campus with prospective recruits during the fall 2012 contact period. Nice try UConn because you are now banned from the NCAA tournament for the 2013 season.

According to the NCAA rules put into place in the month of October, “a school must have a two-year average score of 930 or a four-year average of 900 on the NCAA’s annual Academic Progress Rate, which measures the academic performance of student athletes.”

Connecticut’s men’s basketball scored 826 for the 2009-10 school year. UConn’s score for the 2010-11 school year is expected to be about 975. The combined two-year score of their basketball team would give the Huskies a 900.5, and a four-year average of 888.5, but those numbers will not be enough to get them over the hump. If these rules were in place UConn would have never would have won the tournament because they wouldn’t have been in the tournament in 2011.

Plus there is talk about some players leaving early because of this move by the NCAA and there is talk about this hurting our landing top players. I am on the fence with this one. If the players leave, it is probably for a good reason other than the NCAA ruling. And if players don't come to UConn, it hurts. But it let's you know what kind of player we would have been dealing with anyway at UConn.

Wow, there is no way Drummond stays next year. Plus he just rolled his ankle today. Why risk any injury?

We looked a little better against the Orange, for a while, than we did against Louisville the other day. We just could not make buckets when we needed to. We just have to finish strong and get ready for the Big East Tournament and take our chances from there.

I think he stays. That extra year, or two, will only help him improve his stock,and game, for the draft.

If they are out of the 2013 tourney, why should he stay?

To improve his draft stock and his game. Even though a lot of mock drafts have him going in the top five, he isn't ready. If his goal is to play in the NBA and last more than 2 years, he has to improve. Staying in school another year or two will not kill him. It will only help him improve his game.

I don't disagree with you, but Drummond could have a Kwame Brown like first two years in the NBA, and he'll still be around. He's a young, athletic center, with a ton of upside. There's no level of suckiness he could reach in his first two years to be out of the league.

It makes zero sense for Drummond to go back to school. Unless he completely blows his pre-draft workouts, he's a guaranteed top 5 pick based on his size and potential alone. He could even go as high as #2 in this draft. You don't turn down that kind of guaranteed money. By coming back, he's risking an injury or having another sub-par year in the hope he moves up 1 or 2 spots on the draft board. Not worth it.

Wishful thinking. He's not going to get any bigger, and that's the NBA's principle interest.

I'm a big fan of guys staying in school, but polish is something lacking in most NBA big men. It's an era where a guy like Kendrick Perkins is heavily sought after. If you're a Top 5 draft pick, you leave, especially when your college program is banned from the tourney and there are serious questions about your longtime, face of the program head coach.

He'll go 1 or 2 on potential alone. Anthony Davis will have to kill it in the tournament to pass Drummond.
