Husky History 101

Kemba Walker says he’s not sure he wants his UConn Huskies to play in the NIT.  Jerome Dyson says, “there would be no point.”

Sounds to me like Jim Calhoun (who doesn’t sound so sure himself) should round up some members of his 1988 team.  That team had a mediocre season, then rewrote its history by sweeping five games to win the NIT.

That team begat the “Dream Team,”  and UConn went on to stake its claim as a perennial national power.

So Kemba, meet Tate.  Jerome, get a load of Uncle Cliffy.  Jim, chat with…ummm…oh, just look in the mirror.

Sometimes, you just have to push the reset button.  This would appear to be one of those times.  And there’s nothing wrong with that.

    Thats what happens when college (UCONN) bb players start to listen to all the hype of what they are suppose to achieve. Anything but the NCAA post season is just not good enough for them. They should consider a NIT invite a blessing considering the subpar season they had.

      Agreed. If they’re as good as they say they are, what’s wrong with running the table in the NIT to set the ship right again? Maybe they’ll even get another shot at St. John’s. Then again, an NIT bid isn’t even a lock.
