Good win, but UConn can not keep winning games like this.

They HAVE to be more careful in the future this season.

So many close games, but they must be more careful. They can't let these types of games occur all the time.

Since 1987. I would later graduate from UConn in 1992. I took the 5 year plan. Also, I am a Golden Gopher fan (all my life).

Last night was the first UConn game this season that I wasn't able to watch. However, the winning streak is still alive...Nice to see we can win without Price playing brilliant for once.

Another question for JellyBean:

Am I the only one who thinks that UConn beating Duke for the '99 championship was NOT a huge upset, given that UCONN was also highly ranked, #1 for parts of that year, and a top-seed themselves?

Probably. I mean, it may not have been as big as North Carolina State's victory over Houston in the 1983 finals or Villanova's win over Georgetown in the 1985 title game, but it was up there.

Remember, we were 9 1/2 point underdogs. Duke was, after all, supposedly was invincible. They had won 31 games in a row,with only one of its previous 17 games being closer than 15 points. So for us to pull off that win, to me, it was an upset.

Does anybody know when Slice'n Dyson was suspended? Because I'm pretty sure his infraction had gotten a 45-day suspension.... so I think its almost up.

Yeah it should be soon. I thought that it was up at the end of the month (Feb).

It's a tough call. They were near-equals, both being No. 1 seeds and UConn entering the game 33-2 and Duke entering 37-1.

But Duke was just so, so dominant. UConn was a fantastic team, but Duke had NBA talent coming off the bench. Their No. 5 and 6 scorers were future 2000 ACC POY Chris Carrawell and future 2001 Wooden Award winner Shane Battier.

Their average score that year was 91.8 to 67.2. That outpaces even the '96 Kentucky team, which was regarded- rightfully so- as one of the greatest college teams ever.

Had they won that game, they'd have been in the conversation for all-time greatest teams.

I kinda liken it to the 2005 title game between Illinois and UNC, except Illinois was a little better than '99 UConn and '05 UNC wasn't quite as deep and explosive as '99 Duke.

It wasn't a huge upset in the sense that UConn that year was a national title-caliber team. They were no fluke. That was an outstanding team. It's just that they beat a team that was arguably one of the 10-15 best college teams ever.

So it was an upset, just not a massive one.

I'm starting to like this team here, they're working their way up and starting to get back to being a place you expect to be a good college team. I wanna go there in the fall, and I'm starting to get in to them now
