: : : Rather than playing the hater "UCONN chokes" card, how about giving ND credit?
: : : Notre Dame had a good game plan, and played some crazy good defense. UCONN was missing shots early, and then after ND cranked up the defense, they were having problems even getting good shots.

: : : We can only hope tonight's game ends up being as exciting as last nights.

: : Best three Final Four games, ever! Back and forth games with great finishes. All four teams were basically two points from winning it all.
: : But this is SoCal Hoops, so what's important is to criticize and tear down coaches and players instead of celebrating them.

: :Anyone ripping UCONN for losing one game this season is a moron. Once you get to this level, anything can happen in one game, including an overtime loss to the one of the three best teams in the country. One problem for UCONN is that they do blow through everyone during the regular season, not to their fault, they are playing the best schedule possible, and don't experience too many close games. That seems to be the difference the past two years.
Don't know what their options are to go to a different conference.
Even if they still went 37-0 in a better conference they would be more battle ready when it got down to the Elite 5 or Final Four.
But that decision gets made at the administration level.
