Inane commentary on a game that deserves far better

Sunday, January 17, 2010

We made it to Gampel last night-- in Gampel there are no bad seats, by the way-- and for the first twelve minutes UConn did everything right: the Huskies fed the post, destroyed Notre Dame's offense, and ran up a lead of 24-4.

The rest of the game didn't look quite that lopsided, but it didn't matter by that point: ND are no longer undefeated, and UConn have another big win. Check out the disparity in assists. (I had the sense that when the Huskies visit South Bend, things could be a bit closer.)

Voepel says Tina Charles is already the national player of the year. Geno says something more surprising, for him: "She's playing as well right now as any kid I've had at Connecticut."

The nationally televised game also served as host for ESPN's Game Day show. Muffet McGraw was dismayed: "I hope the electricity was out in the homes of our recruits," she said.
