Love that the women have won 10-straight.

Too bad the local...by local I mean Springfield...paper covers uconn much more closely than it covers UMass. There was no article nor was there even a box score in Sunday's paper. Who knows...coverage in the The Republican might even translate into fans deciding to go to a game or two.

Note to the Springfield paper...the Hartford Courant covers uconn sports...how about shifting your focus from Storrs to Amherst?

So the 1-game suspension for Ngalakulondi for "violating team rules" has now turned into 4 straight games with her missing from the bench. Anyone have any clue as to what is going on? Do reporters even ask questions anymore?
Wouldn't a reporter have to be there first? They all go to the UConn games :twisted:

Hard to blame them. Up until this year, I'm not even sure you could argue that the two teams played the same sport.

Should be 11 in a row after tomorrow. LaSalle is one of the 2 or 3 worst teams in the A10. They are 0-3 in conference and have lost 9 in a row. We CANNOT lose a home game to this team who doesn't shoot well and turns it over 18 times a game.

Right.... but we did lose to Merrimack to start the season, so anything is possible!


I'm going to enjoy what this team is doing rather than worry about games we should win or not. For the time being, though... they do look like the real deal.

Merrimack isn't actually half-bad. They're 8-6 with an RPI of 177. La Salle is 206.

They've played well, but if I recall, our game against them was their first as a D1 program. It was doom and gloom when that happened.

Should have watched the women's game tonight instead of the men. Look at 'em go, 11 in a row. Nice!

I chose the women over the men tonight and glad I did. First women's game I've watched in a few seasons.
