The defending National Champion Connecticut Huskies' depressing season got only more depressing Saturday after getting dominated by the Marquette Golden Eagles, 79-64. The Huskies are now 16-10 (6-8), have lost seven of their lat nine and are in serious jeopardy of missing the NCAA Tournament altogether.
Sophomore guard Shabazz Napier, who had 11 points and eight assists Saturday, has seen enough and called out his teammates following this latest loss.
"I've got to question a lot of these guys' hearts. The simple stuff — allowing somebody to get an alley-oop at the end of the game, just quitting with 16 seconds left — it doesn't look like UConn basketball."
Without Jim Calhoun, who is on indefinite medical leave with spinal stenosis, the team is unfortunately falling apart. Couple what might be an NCAA-less season with the possibility that next year's squad might be banned from the NCAA Tournament due to violations, and things might get a whole lot worse before they get better.
