Not even a year ago, The UConn Blog was watching their Huskies in the Final Four and wondering how the team would top it the following season. Now they’re just wondering how things can possibly get any worse after a 82-69 loss to Louisville that most likely plants them on the furthest regions of the bubble.
The pundits keep insisting that UConn is still alive for an NCAA Tournament bid, but they’re gonna have to, you know, beat somebody. The Texas win was wonderful, but losses to Michigan and Providence undid whatever benefit came from that game. UConn has shown no ability to play on the road, no ability to close out games, and the team looks worse and worse with every passing game. Add it all up and 13-9 is not likely to turn into 20-11.
At this point, it may be time to put those NCAA Tournament hopes to bed and to start considering the future.
