UConn toying with these guys. Really nobody has been competitive with them.

I really love how they are so good defensively but they don't try to win every game 2 to 0. I don't like Hurley but he gets it.

They only enforce what they need to. Not as bad as women's, but still pretty obvious in certain situations.
You get into a lot of gray when you leave it open to interpretation. Its 3 seconds, just enforce it and players have to adjust.

They experimented widening the lane in the NIT, would be interesting if they implement it. Maybe you change it from 3 to 5 seconds and just enforce it at 5, like an inbounds play.

Hurley is actually insane lol. That was hilarious and he’s lucky he didn’t get a T.

Could Uconn bring this entire team back? Anyone out of eligibility?

Yeah I like him, don’t like how he’s officiated in many games but I get it’s hard.
Agreed. But he can’t control that. If he whined and complained about it that would be entirely different since he’s already given the benefit on that end many times. But he’s a good dude from all accounts.

Agree that 3 seconds should be easy to call. Especially on the focal point of a team's offense.

Houston mid season would have pushed them but right now I don’t think anybody would.
