Monday Smiles – 3/31/2014

huskiesMarch 11, 2013, New York Times: Left Behind, UConn Ponders Starting Over Again As the gradual deconstruction of a proud conference occurred over the past decade and concluded in recent months with raids by the Atlantic Coast Conference and the announced mass departure of the so-called Catholic 7 basketball universities, Connecticut has become the most successful of athletic institutions left standing in a manipulative and almost diabolical game of musical conferences.

March 8, 2014, Connecticut Post: Huskies look to regroup after embarrassing loss – The UConn Huskies only have a few days to figure out where they would will spend their March Madness.  If Saturday’s embarrassing loss to No. 11 Louisville — 81-48 in front of a sellout crowd at the KFC Yum! Center — is any indication, it won’t be on a basketball court.

March 30, 2014, This is Sparta: Gary Harris, Travis Trice, and Denzel Valentine bounce back from their sub par performances against Virginia while Branden Dawson remains in beast mode. Adreian Payne also has a big game while Keith Appling will continue his role as a facilitator on offense. Shabazz Napier will get his points, but Michigan State’s defense will contain cogs Deandre Daniels and Ryan Boatright. Look for Branden Dawson and Adreian Payne to crash the offensive glass for second chance points. Michigan State wins 78-70 and heads to Dallas to take on Florida in the Final Four.

    Go Huskies! Takes us back to 2011, 2004 and 1999, years of UConn national titles. And it takes some of us old-times back to 1964 and an improbable UConn run in the Tournament that included wins over Temple, St. Joseph, and Princeton led by future NBA star and NJ senator Bill Bradley. That run was cut short by a lopsided victory at the hands of Duke, a loss that was not avenged until the Huskies won the championship game against the Blue Devils in 1999. The Huskies are off to Dallas for the Final Four. Life is good!!
