    IS U was damn goodon the defensive end tonight!

    I'm amazed how well we played on the defensive end. I was concerned about their bigs being able to score and their guards ability to penetrate. There was about a 4 min. stretch (2nd half) where we gave up some points, but many of the shots they hit were incredibly tough. And, they way we controlled the boards was amazing... Have to give some props to our defensive and caching for that!

    Extremely good effort on defense. UConn went on some runs, but I never felt like it was because of bad defense.

    Loved the scrappiness.

    Mixed it up by going to the zone for a while there, then switching back to man.
