While the Big East Conference is all about the Syracuse Orange, the NCAA tournament will feature another conference foe that may be just as dangerous—the University of Connecticut Huskies.
The defending NCAA national champions come into the tournament with a less-than-stellar 19-12 record, but as they proved last year, it’s all about momentum. With a mediocre performance in the Big East tournament, the Huskies are ready for the NCAA madness.
With head coach Jim Calhoun returning from back surgery just in time for the Big East tournament, he has proven to be the spark that the team needed to push for another national title.
While three titles for Calhoun seemed like enough, winning another NCAA tournament is just too alluring for the coach to turn down.
