Let's get something clear: January sucked. On December 31 UConn easily dispatched St. John's to move to 12-1 and 2-0 in the Big East. Then the wheels came off the bus, UConn lost five of its next seven, Ryan Boatright got jerked around by the NCAA and the team just wasn't fun to watch.
But now, now it's February, that magical month where Jim Calhoun teams gel, go on earth-scorching win streaks and earn the high seeds that lead to March glory. I can't promise that will start tonight, but with a new-look starting lineup featuring Ryan Boatright, the Huskies better hope it starts soon, because if this isn't the answer, I'm not sure UConn is finding one.
