A Preview

On CBS today, just before the Memphis game, we are treated to a great matchup between Gonzaga and Connecticut.

With Stanley Robinson back, Connecticut may well have all the pieces to contend for number one. I surely think the Connecticut front line could give Tyler Hansborough a tough time in the paint.

Commenting on the their recent rout of Stony Brook, ESPN says:

"The Huskies have won 134 of their last 135 home games played before January against opponents from outside the Big East."

I know that is supposed to say great things about Connecticut, but doesn't it really mean that the Huskies normally puff up their won lost record before Big East play, by playing only the little guys in their neighborhood?

I'm not saying Gonzaga is going to win. Pargo could be the difference maker. But the game might give us some ideas about how to handle Hytvelt and Daye.
