This is the closest thing we have to rivalry in this conference and rivalry games never go as you expect

Don't disagree that since we joined the old Big East UConn has become a rival of sorts due to some big games that we've played against them. But, don't forget that we have quite the history with Memphis that goes back a long time through several conferences.
When they right their ship, (notice I said "when" and not "if") the rivalry with Memphis will come more to the forefront.

FWIW, all time head-to-head the Cats have played the Tigers 76 times. The only teams we've played more are Louisville (91), Saint Louis (78) and Xavier (78). We've played Connecticut 24 times but 22 of them has been during the Mick Cronin era.

It really didn't become a rivalry until after the Big East broke up.

This is absolutely a true story too

I agree, but it's been a fun one for the past half decade. And that's even with us getting the short end of the tight conf tourney games. I'm not sure if UConn fans embrace it, but they should. Once UCOnn is back, it will be a really fun one.

Noon games and students being there at tip have almost never mixed in my experience.

It was a fun game to watch. No offense to UCF, but I was rooting for Houston to aid their NCAA Tourney quest and thus raise our conference’s profile.

UCF is really building something. I can see them becoming a perennial tourney team if they keep Dawkins around.

RE: 2/3 AAC Basketball Games
Final score looks a lot closer than this game ever was. An 8-point blowout. Cats controlled this game from the opening tip and coasted the rest of the game. Just business as usual. UConn still hasn't had a lead against us in a game since the 4OT game; that's 160 minutes of inept huskies lol. They would have won if we were in the big east though.

We got really sloppy down the stretch. Whole game was a bit lackadaisical. Need to finish a bit better, but I'm not going to complain about road wins.
