Oh How The Husky Have Fallen . . .

Where Am I? The Twighlight Zone?

In the span of one year, the Connecticut Huskies have gone from:

Losing a classic, six overtime thriller against Syracuse in the Big East tourney to being on the wrong end of a 22 point opening round smackdown by Big East bottom feeder St. John’s.

Having a number one seed heading into the NCAA tournament and reaching the Final Four to checking the mail for an invite to the NIT

That’s quite a fall . . .

UConn had beaten the Red Storm in nine straight meetings but couldn’t make it ten. They weren’t even close.  At all. 

The tale of the tape:

The Huskies could only muster nine field goals in the first half

They racked up 20 turnovers for the game

They were 6 of 18 from the charity stripe

And their defense allowed St. John’s to shoot at a 50% clip

No wonder they lost 73-51 . . .

On the day after UConn’s women broke their own record of consecutive wins with 71 straight, the men couldn’t get it going . . .

Geno Auriemma must be embarrassed for Jim Calhoun.  With their NCAA hopes dashed – the Husky men sit back and wait for their NIT invite.  Fingers crossed . . .
