TheRoundUp 2/2: Signing day? Nah son, we're playing Syracuse

The Day - Steady-as-they-go Huskies take on suddenly reeling Orange | News from southeastern Connecticut
"In Syracuse's case, you know what you face and it's a really good zone," Calhoun said. "They don't look quite as fluid on offense and the zone is not moving as quickly as it was early in the season. And we're talking now half a step. But that half a step will be made up. Jimmy is not going to sit back and allow that to happen.

COY: The case for Jim Calhoun - College Basketball Nation Blog - ESPN
Simply put, it’s been one of the finest coaching jobs in Calhoun’s storied career. The Huskies have gone from an NIT team that returned the absolute fewest minutes of any Big East squad to legit Final Four contender. From unranked and out-of-sight to top-10 ranking and legit Final Four contender. Sounds like a national coach of the year finalist to me.

UConn Restocks The Roster For Pasqualoni's First Season - Hartford Courant
There are 16 players in the class and half are three-star athletes. The Huskies were believed to be looking to bring 16 or 17. They had 17 but lost three-star cornerback Adrian Amos to Penn State this week. There may or may not be a surprise addition to the class Wednesday on National Signing Day. Still, the class is pretty good considering the coaching turnover. It's a testament to the staff's ability to retain much of the class while things weren't so stable before Paul Pasqualoni replaced Randy Edsall as coach.

Journal Inquirer > Sports > Road gets tougher for UConn women
"February is usually when teams start to separate themselves," UConn coach Geno Auriemma said. "I think given the nature of our league, a lot is going to happen the next couple of weeks. (DePaul coach) Doug Bruno told me the other day that starting with West Virginia (last Sunday) they have nothing but tough games. So do we. So does West Virginia. So does Notre Dame. That’s why it’s important not to get sky high over one win."

UConn's Maya Moore Just Defies Common Sense - Swish Appeal
She was as decisive as any player I've seen on the block, showing the ability to not only quickly get her shot up but draw contact and finish as though it never occurred to her that she couldn't play the post. Obviously, she's not the type of player that's going to establish position, create a wide target, and drop step you to death; instead, she just beats her defender to the spot she decides it's best to beat you from and scores.

The Day - Class of 2012's top prospect gives verbal commitment to UConn | News from southeastern Connecticut
