The Difference Between UConn and Duke


Rudy Gay is supposed to be Connecticut’s best player. He’s supposed to be one of the best players in the country. A potential top pick in the NBA draft and millions of dollars await him when he leaves school. The kid’s a stud.

That stud scored 1 point in the first half last night. His entire game totals of three rebounds and six turnovers show that he accounted for more points for the other Huskies than he did for UConn.

And they still won.

Connecticut used a gutsy 26 point performance from Marcus Williams and got a heroic effort from Rashaad Anderson to advance within one win of the final four. Only eleven seed George Mason stands in the way now.

That’s why they are going to win the national title. They have a point guard who wants every shot and takes it to the basket better than any small player in the county and a sharpshooter that already knows what it takes to be a champion. Forget not having a go to guy. They have two.

It just so happens that their best player isn’t one of them.

Yeah, the depth that UConn has is ridiculous. Teams should not be able to bring guys like Rashard Anderson, Jeff Adrien, Ed Nelson, and Craig Austrie off the bench.

Now if they could learn how to play for 40 minutes...
