The Connecticut Huskies have been on an absolute roll the past couple of weeks.
Between their improbable Big East tournament run and their two convincing wins in the NCAA tournament, the Huskies reeled off seven consecutive wins in a week and a half against top-notch competition (except DePaul). I would be shocked if any team has done that before.
With UConn in the Sweet 16, the question now becomes, do the Huskies have the ability to turn this roll into one of the greatest stretches in NCAA history by cutting down the nets in Houston on April 4th?
Their road would be tough, starting off with San Diego State and then conceivably running into three top seeds in Duke, Ohio State and Kansas if the favorites all win (knowing March Madness, they won't).
While I wouldn't put money on it (mine is on Ohio State), it isn't out of the question. Here are seven reasons to believe in Kemba Walker and the Huskies.
