TheRoundUp 1/19: God I love UConn basketball

The Day - UConn men thinking Big (East) | News from southeastern Connecticut
"Definitely, I think we can contend for the title," sophomore Alex Oriakhi said. "I feel we can play with anybody. A lot of people say we're young, but we're not playing like it.

It's almost too simplistic to say that last year's UConn men's basketball team would have lost a game like Monday's with Villanova. Or its Jan. 8 game in Texas. Or even its New Year's Eve meeting with South Florida. But it's hard to think otherwise.
