    I was thinking the same thing after that last 3. UC has no clue against this press.

    Mistakes like that are signs of a young team.

    A young team made mistakes and lost.

    Dammit!!

    They'll learn from this...but this one hurts.

    5-2 looks a lot better than 4-3...especially with your next 2 on the road at Seton Hall and at WV with Huggs.

    Yep. I hope all the Bearcats fans still on the fence out there don't lose heart when they see the L in tomorrow's Enquirer. That was a heck of a performance against a quality team.

    But if you want to know why UC lost, look no further than this. Down the stretch, UC was 1 for 4 from the line and UConn was 4 for 4. Kenny Belton is turning into a fine player, but he's still a freshman and he made a freshman mistake. Never foul late and with the lead. Never.

    Great game. Big East basketball sure is fun to watch.
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    They are certainly playing to the level of their opponents so far this year

    Ugh! I can't believe how this game ended.

    Oh well, the score can't be any closer than that. They played a heck of a game.

    Uconn isn't very good this year. Should have been a win at home. The Big East is pretty average overall from top to bottom. There isn't a team in the league that can't beat another team if they are at home. I'd say next year the Big East is gonna be loaded and UC will be severely tested. This year is below average for the Big East.
    This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.

    Re: UC Basketball right around the corner!

    So UC can't improve into next year?

    They're young....this year is huge for their development, not only as individual players, but also as a team.

    I still say the true taste of UC comes in the 2009-2010 year, but there's not reason they can't take positive steps (postseason play, for instance) before then.

    Below average? Id love to see your ranking of other conferences.

    They may be "down" this year, but they're still one of the top basketball conferences in the country.

    My point is this isn't Conference USA anymore. Obviously UC will be better next year but so will most other teams that were rebuilding in the Big East. Tonight was a home game against one of the best known programs in America and the attendance was still shoddy. It's no guarantee that UC will ever be as good as they were in the 90's. Each year teams get major talent in this conference and without sustained success there could be a 5-6 absence from the tournament.

    Agree on the free throw shooting but what about Bishop's foul when the ball hadn't even been inbounded yet?

    This one is really tough to swallow...glad to see them continue to play hard, though. They'll continue to win their share of games this year.
