Nice Matchup Tonight
Yes, it's #1 UCONN hosting #4 Pitt. Also Big East Player of the Year candidates DeJuan Blair and Hasheem Thabeet matching up. I'll be cheering for the guy in blue, because he scores two more points and grabs one and a half more rebounds per game with eight fewer inches to work with.
EDIT: Good game to watch. I really think both teams have a Final Four run in them. DeJuan Blair had a fantastic game, with 22 points and 23 rebounds. He doesn't have the soft touch of a Harangody, but he is just a brute force. Sam Young had a great game too for Pitt.
For the Huskies, A.J. Price was the only force from deep but he got some help from Kemba Walker and Adrien. Jeff Adrien (or any other Huskies player) really doesn't enough credit. He's the offensive post player on that team. Cover Boy? 5 and 4 in 23 foul shortened minutes.
