    Official Uconn MBB roster- 2020-21 (Martin update)

    It could be dangerous to hand out a redshirt with Covid still around, but perhaps the NCAA will allow schools to rip redshirts off of guys if Covid ends up putting some guys on the inactive list. This would be fair and if this is allowed, by all means give JB a redshirt and allow the young man...

    Official Uconn MBB roster- 2020-21 (Martin update)

    Great news although if I may be honest he was really more needed the next 2 years and not this one. The team is crazy deep!

    Well now we know why Maya stopped her career to help this man get out of jail

    If I may be honest I suspected this all along. That there was something beyond justice that caused her to give up 2 seasons in her prime. Love was that something

    Welcome back Kevin Freeman !

    That's an interesting article Blades, my take on it is I wonder if Hunter was offended by Kimani Young getting promoted (it seems that started being discussed right after Sanogo committed), and decided to go elsewhere where he could move into an associate head coach role and have that title...

    Welcome back Kevin Freeman !

    It hasn't been all roses and rainbows for Coach Chambers at Penn State. These reports surfaced earlier this year: https://triblive.com/sports/report-penn-state-basketball-coach-patrick-chambers-made-noose-comment-to-player/ Possibly a "slip of the tongue", but as a coach of basketball players...

    He has had the same kind of bump as Zoom stock- value is rising!

    Welcome back Kevin Freeman !

    I didn't remember him being MOP of the 1999 Big East Tournament. I can't recall if it was 1998 or 1999, but in one of those Big East tournaments Rashamael Jones was huge off the bench. He was a guy who did a lot of damage in transition. I do remember Freeman's contributions in the 1999 NCAA West...

    Tragic news in the Uconn BB family- (again ??)

    I remember watching that draft on TV to see where Cliff was picked. What was annoying was they had a room for the draftees and as the first round went on and all invited players were selected except Cliff, after every pick they showed Cliff all alone in the room and not happy. After a while it...

    Tragic news in the Uconn BB family- (again ??)

    The Portland media is reporting that Cliff had a tumor removed from his jaw in 2018 and a brain hemorrhage, so he had recent health issues: https://www.google.com/amp/s/katu.com/amp/news/local/former-blazer-cliff-robinson-passes-away-at-53

    Tragic news in the Uconn BB family- (again ??)

    I knew Cliff personally when I was a student at UConn. He occasionally asked me for rides up to the then "Store 24" Convenience Store for late night munchies on cold winter nights when only a fool would walk up there. Back in those days I drove a crappy little Dodge Omni with no leg room for a...

    Welcome back Kevin Freeman !

    What I like and respect about Kevin Freeman is that he is a player who learned how to "stay in his lane." I remember a game his freshman year against Indiana, which I think UConn lost, in which he was trying to do a lot of ballhandling on the perimeter and transition and had some TOs. He...

    NCAA Embracing Idea of Bubble For Basketball

    The thing about Mohegan Sun that is worrisome is they don't answer to State authorities or anyone else really. I am licensed to practice there and they are a de facto sovereign country with their own laws. This was a real problem for our Governor because he couldn't order them to do anything and...

    May the best candidate get the job. I have no preference as long as they can work with and develop the bigs!

    NCAA Spills More Dirt on LSU Coach Will Wade

    Sounds like this guy is a show cause penalty waiting to happen and join Kevin Ollie on the sidelines, although this is much more filthy dirty than anything Kevin did...

    Big East Has Top 2 Spots in ESPN Preseason Top 25

    NBC Sports called Bey the most underrated prospect in the NBA draft in the below video, which showcases his defensive skills, but I don't believe NBA talent evaluators underrate a 6'8" player who can both shoot and defend the 3. Perimeter defense in the NBA is at its highest premium ever right...

    UConn DC Previews Sensational 6 UConn Freshmen Women

    Could be the best since the Bird-Cash-Williams-Jones-Walters class of 1998 that went undefeated in 2002. That group won 2 championships (would have won a 3rd if Shea and Svet did not get hurt in 2001). This group could be better in terms of championships.
