Ok now that I have that out of my system, let's get to the game. After a good first half by SU, they laid a huge dinosaur egg in the second half. As soon as they got down by 10 they packed it in. Its as if they said "Well UConn has our number, so lets mail it in. We'll get them next time". It was embarrassing the way they played. Give UConn all the credit for taking SU out of the game and coming out of the locker room fired up. They attacked the boards and Gerry McNamara has some sort of mental block against UConn. You're going to have bad shooting days like yesterday. And yesterday wasnt just bad it was atrocious, but you cant just give up like the Orange did yesterday. It was bad, very bad. I was watching Billy Packer say that the SU players' heads were down and I didnt believe him, but after awhile I realized he was exactly right. Warrick was the only one that wanted the ball at all. It was a humbling and humiliating experience yesterday at Gampel Pavilion. Lets see what the Orange has in store this week in the Big East tourney.
