It’s not actually reasonable that UConn developed a college group of people who can really shoot.

Brad Townsend @townbrad

Regrettable about the thrashing, however UConn is something to enjoy, male.

Tarek Fattal @Tarek_Fattal

Saw UCONN play in Vegas versus Arkansas – Huskies are so excellent. Uneven rating aside, whatever they did was elite. Size, ball motion, defense, length on the wings, shot-making, and Hurley at the controls. It will take a Herculean effort from SDSU to install a return.

David Wilson @DBWilson2

Somebody requires to compose a great explainer for how UConn ended up being the very best and/or most convenient task in the nation. Danny Hurley is 20 minutes far from being the 3rd various UConn coach to win a championship game in the last 13 years.

The very best group won the competition. UConn was so dominant the entire method through. In a competition loaded with disparities, UConn was rock strong every video game.

UConn basketball in the 13 years:<< br><> < br>>- Six missed out on competitions<< br>>- Three Sweet 16s … however they won the championship game all 3 times. << br><> < br>> There’s absolutely nothing like them.

UConn went into the year unranked in the preseason AP Poll and increased all the method to a nationwide title. The last time that took place remained in 2011 when the Huskies took house their 3rd champion.

This year’s group was unique as head coach Dan Hurley had his group peaking at the best time and playing its finest basketball when it mattered most, stressing its amazing run through the bracket with a title.
