    UConn threw the game?

    Has anyone else wondered whether UConn's womens team threw the game last night against Stanford so that they could focus on winning another championship rather than have the pressure to win every game?

    If it was thrown, I doubt that would be the reason.

    You're thinking way too much about this loss...I guarantee they didn't throw that game.

    Umm, no way the throw a game. A perfect season is the ultimate goal.

    That would be one of the dumbest things... If you've won that many straight including multiple national championships in a row, you are not worried about focusing on the next one as you've already done it on multiple occasions.

    They got outplayed last night, in a rough place to play with Stanford ready to go... Don't start making excuses for them now on how 'they lost on purpose'...

    Nope, they didn't throw it. They got beat.

    That being said, losing to Stanford isn't the worst thing that could've happend to them.

    Re: UConn threw the game?

    No. You will win a Nat Champ by winning every game. If you lose the wrong game, you can not win a Nat Champ.

    Besides, it was a 6-point game with 1:30 left. A two possession game. Please tell me what coach is going to throw up their hands at that point, say "We can't win", and give up.

    Looks like UCONN cannot win at Stanford.

    It's not like Baylor almost beat them. Did they almost throw that game?

    No way they threw it, but if they were going to lose now probably wasn't a bad time for it to happen.

    Re: UConn threw the game?

    Iowa State football team threw the game against Iowa so we could focus on the rest of the season. I think.


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.
