Re: '12-'13 UC Basketball
Just to get a little discussion going, how about UConn going from unranked in the AP poll to #23? They leapfrogged UC which stayed at #24. UC finally enters the coaches poll, which it should have been in from the beginning. I know people get tired of Cronin's lack of respect routine, but I think their ranking is a bit lower than it should be. Polls don't matter a whole lot, especially right now, but fans do pay attention to them. Things will even out if UC plays to it's potential.
As for the team this year, I like the fact that they can play up tempo. Guard play will be very strong, and they should be able to hold their own down low. The key will be getting quality minutes from the bench. If UC plays as deep as Mick says they can, they will be very tough to beat. UC doesn't really get a true test for a couple more games, but I have a lot of optimism heading into the season.
