Connecticut is used to drama at the Big East Tournament, just not this kind.
The Huskies lost the six-overtime classic to Syracuse last year at Madison Square Garden and won the 1996 championship when Ray Allen outdueled Allen Iverson down the stretch of a classic final. But this year they will be fighting for their NCAA Tournament lives. A fight they are more than capable of winning, say ESPN’s Fran Fraschilla and CBS’ Greg Anthony.
“They have three of the best players in the league with Stanley Robinson, Jerome Dyson and Kemba Walker,” said Fraschilla, who coached at St. John’s and Manhattan.
