The Huskies are a very good team, but when it comes to numbers, the team is struggling in several categories.
Connecticut finished eighth in the Big East in scoring margin, 11th in scoring defense, and 11th in field goal percentage. If they run into a team that can hit the three ball, the Huskies could have some trouble catching up.
They were 11th in the Big East in three-point field goal defense and 10th in the conference in making the long shot from beyond the arc. If the Huskies run into Missouri, this could really hurt them.
Finally, the big number is the assists. The Huskies were 13th in the Big East in assists, which just shows how one-dimensional this team can be.
The numbers don’t lie, and the numbers suggest that the Huskies are destined for an early exit in the 2011 NCAA tournament.
