Notes/Quotes from New Hampshire: “I’m not going to apologize for a win.”

on
UConn hit a funk Thursday evening and never snapped out. What ensued was an ugly (and I mean truly hideous) 61-53 victory over New Hampshire.

Notes/Quotes from Nov. 28: “Wherever we’re at, we’re going to be competing for conference titles.”

The buzz in Storrs Wednesday afternoon was conference realignment, not New Hampshire basketball. Hard to believe, I know. Still, we found some time to talk hoops before UConn (5-1 and unranked) hosts UNH Thursday night at the XL Center. Some of the highlights: *Redshirt senior R.J. Evans (sternalclavicular sprain) has made “great progress,” according to […] [Read More]
