One of UConn men’s basketball’s most devastating losses is their 2006 Elite 8 defeat at the hands of George Mason. A stacked Huskies squad was rolling in the tournament until they overlooked the upstart Patriots, bringing their season to an abrupt and disappointing end.

A big reason the Huskies were so hyped entering March Madness was a resounding victory over the highly-ranked Villanova Wildcats near the end of the regular season. This win avenged a hard-fought loss from a few weeks before and put the nation on notice.
