Welcome to the Paradise Jam everybody. If you missed our preview earlier today I suggest you check it out. The short version of the story is this: Wake Forest might be the worst major conference team in the country, but in the chaos of an early-season tourney you never know what can happen. Though we do know what should happen: UConn should win, because Wake Forest has 10 freshmen, which is three more than UConn had in 2006-07, and we all remember how that turned out.

The game tips off at 6:30 on CBS Sports Network (Channel 613 for those of you with DirecTV), and we'll be in the thread below discussing it. Join us. Go Huskies, and remember: take the stairs because escalators are for cowards.
