What's the biggest question you want to see answered between now and the end of the regular season?
Creme: What becomes of UConn? We knew losing Azzi Fudd for the season was a big blow, but it appears even bigger than anyone thought. Her shooting is badly missed. Veterans Nika Muhl and Aubrey Griffin don't look as comfortable as they did a season ago, and Auriemma doesn't seem to completely trust his young players yet.
All of that has meant a bigger burden on Bueckers and Aaliyah Edwards to carry the Huskies every night; and to this point, it has been too much to ask. Neither is playing her best. The result is three double-digit losses, albeit to three of the best teams in the country in the first month. Where will the answers come from with a schedule that still includes nonconference matchups with North Carolina, Louisville, Notre Dame and South Carolina? And two of UConn's first three Big East games are against Marquette and Creighton, both of which are now ranked.
"The result is three double-digit losses, albeit to "three of the best teams in the countryin the first month."
IN the first month is/are the operative word/s.
(It's nice to hear Meghan Cuomo echo this point)
They had little chance....the schedule is still difficult, and now I am hoping to see what they can do against currently 24th ranked North Carolina on Sunday followed by our favorite we love to hate 16th ranked Louisville 6 days later - not much of a break, TBH, yet I am hoping that the confidence built in this game can continue through these next 2, win or lose.
Shade is something. They all are good and starting to really show confidence, but Shade is really some thing. I am hoping for good things, but managing my expectations to keep the mojo good.
