Ugly Results

The Connecticut basketball team rarely brings home a report card like the one that resulted from Tuesday night's road test at Seton Hall.

There were some shocking numbers. Seton Hall shot 52 percent in the second half. Even worse, the Pirates hit 60 percent (6 of 10) of their three-point shots after halftime.

Fastbreak points, advantage to The Hall, 11-2.

Points in the paint, advantage The Hall, 28-20..

Second chance points, The Hall, 13-10.

UConn shot 35.1 percent and had 14 turnovers.

We could go on and on. Associate head coach George Blaney saw all the numbers and said this: "I just think we need to get back to the practice court and get after things again. We should be OK."

That's the voice of experience. Everyone should listen to George.
