With no hope of a Big East or national championship, the UConn Huskies men's basketball team will be relegated to the role of spoilers for the rest of this season.
They've shown enough talent and poise to be at the very least a tough out for even the best teams in the Big East, and they could shock a team or two down the stretch.
If you ask any player on the team, they'll tell you this season is about growth, improvement and pride. Wins and losses still matter even if they're ultimately not going to lead to the promised land.
The Huskies (14-5, 4-3 Big East) have overachieved thus far but their season is far from over. Tough games remain against traditional rivals that will define whether this season is viewed as a success or a failure.
These are the five remaining games that will define the 2012-13 UConn Huskies season.
