When the met two weeks ago UConn needed overtime to grit out a win over Cincinnati. That was a good win for the Huskies, but if they want to follow it up with a repeat today their task is going to be a whole lot tougher. The Huskies are on the road this time, they'll have to overcome the disappointment after a heartbreaking loss to Georgetown, and, most importantly, it seems likely they'll be playing without Shabazz Napier. Napier hasn't been officially ruled out for the game, but he won't be starting (RJ Evans has taken his place in the lineup), and that could be enough to cripple the Huskies against a Cincinnati team desperate for a win after losing four of its last five and seeing itself drift ever closer to the bubble.

The game tips off at 2 on SNY. This is your OpenThread. Join the conversation below. Go Huskies, and remember: take the stairs because escalators are for cowards.
