    Napier and Boatright carry the show for them. Anyone know anything else about them?

    I know Louisville just destroyed them. Have to analyze that film.

    They match up with us size wise, I believe.
    They'll be out for revenge from 2012.
    They will have a ton of fans in MSG.

    Would they really care about 2012? 2 Years ago, noone from that team for us anymore. And the winner had to play Kentucky anyways, maybe the best team in the last 10 years.

    Two very good guards, will have homecourt advantage, will have to keep playing the way we are.

    From what I saw against Nova, stop the dribble drive and you stop UCONN. It seems the lack of size will not be an issue. Kane needs to stay out of fouls trouble and we may want to rotate guards often to keep them fresh on the defensive end.

    Overall, I like this match up.

    False.
    Napier, Boatright, Olander, Giffey, and Daniels were all on that 2012 team. I'm sure they remember.

    Napier is a pretty special talent. They have some long arm enforcers down low as well.

    The teams that they have lost to are all REALLY good except maybe Houston.

    Don't know if SMU qualifies as "REALLY good." Good, sure.

    UConn lost to Louisville 3 times and SMU twice. Also Stanford noncon. That's six of their losses.

    Nobody from UCONN cares about 2012. Irrelevant. Napier holds the key to them. They are very good. We will have to have an A+ performance to advance but it can be done.

    I think we match up better against UConn than against UNC. But they're all tough at this point.
