Louisville Dominates Sloppy UConn -
The Huskies (20-6, 8-6 Big East) couldn't find those intangibles. A UConn-Louisville game is often the Cardinals' perimeter play and pressure vs. the Huskies' muscle. This time, the Cardinals got to every loose ball and knocked the Huskies out of everything they tried to do.

"Kemba has had two terrifically efficient games [against Providence and Georgetown]," Calhoun said. "I think [Louisville] did a nice job on Jeremy [Lamb], but they didn't have to, really; he did it to himself. And for the first time in a while, Kemba did it a little to himself, too.

"You're going to get beat in this league and we could have gotten beat tonight. But how we got beat is what is more concerning to me, the fact that our teams typically haven't been beat that way. Normally we get beat [by Louisville] because they make 10 threes or that type of thing. That didn't occur tonight. It was a much more physical game and they kept us out of doing some things we wanted to do. You have to impose your will upon another team and we didn't impose our will the way we should have."

Jim Calhoun Unsure Why UConn Freshmen Are Looking Tentative -
"Every one of our kids … we were asking the same things about Kemba three or four games ago," Calhoun said. "Roscoe's shooting. You can ask questions. Has [Lamb] hit some sort of wall? He did, I thought, 10 games ago. Last two games he hasn't been very good, offensively, and he's better than that. Got to keep working. He'll be back."
