Hartford, CT– Shabazz Napier scored a career-high 34 points, rallying UConn to an 86-81 overtime win over the Tigers.  The Huskies becoming the first team to sweep a season series from the Tigers since 2002.

Thanks to a season-best 24 points from Joe Jackson, the U of M took a 69-66 lead late only to see Napier send the game to OT, hitting a lay-up while being fouled with just under a minute to go.

With the loss, the Tigers drop to 5th in the AAC, 19-6 overall, 8-4 in conference play.

    Can we replace UConn with Murray State or UAB?

    There are no good losses, but this loss is on time. The Tigers’ smirks have been wiped away by a team with superior attitude. Now the coaching must begin. The prima donnas must become Floor Generals. The assistant coaches must counsel. The Tiger high-wire acts must be tethered to the ground.

    Sadly, street ball will only carry you so far. I predict UConn will beat Memphis again, if they play in the Tournament.

    Pass the ball? Heck no……take it to the rim baby. That’s how we roll.

    Rebounds, who needs rebounds (42nd in the nation)
