UConn Fans React To The Big Win

Over at SB Nation’s UConn Blog, Huskies fans are in a state of euphoria after this afternoon’s triumph:

I think I speak for all us when I say: AHHHHHHH!

With the whole euphoric thing clouding my judgement, here are the only coherent things I can say about this game.

1. First person to say UConn plays better under Blaney gets drop-kicked.

2. That court-storming was embarrassing. We have two titles and just went to the Final Four. Get your sh*t together, student body.

3. It’s amazing what can happen when Kemba is running at full speed. Although he committed some of the worst turnovers I’ve ever seen en route to a career-high eight, his emergence in the second half (along with Texas’ foul trouble and Rick Barnes’ bone-headed move not to call a timeout) was what swung this game. Jerome Dyson was his usual stat-stuffing self, scoring a career-high 32 points. But while that shouldn’t be overlooked, it’s really become customary at this point. What this team needed was someone to run the show, and that’s exactly what he did — on offense and by throwing himself around like a rag doll.

For their full reaction, head over to The UConn Blog. Given the context, it’s no stretch to say that this win could very well change their entire season.
