A - That’s a fair point, it’s just a little distressing to see against a D-2 school. lol There is a lot of season to go, but it is just such an incredibly inexperienced team. There is some real talent there, but very very raw. Heck, our best player is probably AJ Price and last night was his first “real” game at UConn.
And as much as I hate to admit it, my Huskies would have a verrry tough time against the Heels (at least this year).

Thats hard to judge from the first game Kuz. I remember we used to struggle big time in our first couple of games. You often overdo things and try to do too much. I hve to think Calhoun will get these boys straightened out ok before the regular season starts. Of course they will still be no match for my Heels.
Went to the first UConn exhibition game of the season last night up in Storrs. Wow. That was some truly UGLY basketball at times, but I suppose that is not entirely surprising for
a) a first game; and
b) a team with ZERO juniors or seniors (except for 2 walk-ons).
The team has a lot of speed and athleticism, but boy they are not clicking together yet. The biggest problem was the passing and rebounding. Passes were sailing to and fro or off people’s hands and there was a decided lack of boxing out.
And all this against a Division II school! Ay yi yi. Here’s to hoping a little time to mature will do the team good…
