The Senior Class: The Charges



My rage has led me to think about all the things this senior class of Gavin Edwards, Jerome Dyson and Stanley Robinson have and have not done.

 

IN THEIR FAVOR

-Made the Final Four in 2009, overcoming the injury of Jerome Dyson

-Got UConn's first ever win at home against a #1 ranked team (Texas, 2010)

 

Now, let's get to all the negatives. It's quite the list.

CHARGES AGAINST

-The first Jim Calhoun team to miss postseason play since 1986-87 (2006-07)

-The first Jim Calhoun team to lose a 1st Round NCAA game (San Diego 2008)

-The first Jim Calhoun team to lose a game at the Final Four (Michigan State, 2009)

-Have not won a single Big East Tournament game

-Have not won a Big East Regular Season Championship

-Lost to Syracuse in the Big East Tournament twice

-Lost the greatest game in Big East Tournament history (6 OT)

-They have the worst W-L  of a 4-year Jim Calhoun class (not counting seniors in his first 3 seasons) since the 1994-95 seniors, and need 3 wins just to TIE that class (currently 89-41)

-Have a player who will likely never win an NCAA Tournament or postseason game, and has so far only played in one (Jerome Dyson, against San Diego)

-First UConn team to lose to Duke since 1992

-Drove Jim Calhoun to a medical leave of absence

-Performed so poorly in his return game against a mediocre team (to whom they lost twice) that Calhoun called it one of the most embarrassing losses in his career

-Lost back-to-back must-win-for-NCAA hopes in their senior year, including their final regular season game at Gampel Pavillion where they blew a 13-point lead
