UConn men back at No. 1


Connecticut returned to No. 1 in the Associated Press’ college basketball poll Monday after one week out of the top spot.

The Huskies (27-2) had their three-week stint at No. 1 end with a loss to Pittsburgh. The Huskies received 67 first-place votes from the 72-member national media panel.

North Carolina (25-3) moved from fourth to second and was No. 1 on three ballots. Pittsburgh (26-3) fell to third and received one first-place vote.

Oklahoma, which lost to Kansas last week without preseason All-America Blake Griffin, then beat Texas Tech with him back in the lineup, fell one place to fourth.

Memphis (26-3) received one first-place vote and remained fifth. Louisville and Duke stayed sixth and seventh while Michigan State advanced one spot to eighth.

Kansas, the defending national champion, used the win over Oklahoma and a 90-65 victory over Missouri to jump from 15th to ninth. Wake Forest moved from No. 13 to round out the top 10.

I just want you all to know that I make "Way More" than all of you. I'm not going to discuss this any further so just "Shut-Up".

I'm kidding! Just trying to make fun of Calhoun a little.

My dream season is KU vs. UConnvict in the NC game.

Calhoun is not a loveable guy, because he is, basically, a phallic image in a suit. But he has proven durable and able to make talented teams play well over time and KU has yet to really put it to one of his teams in a big time game that mattered. I would really like to see KU upset UConnvict for the national championship with a one point win that could have gone either way, but went to KU. :-)

I believe this is a dream, because I believe UConnvict has a lot of good players and a year more experience than we have. But, if we were to get that far, I know Coach Self would outcoach Calhoun, so we might have some chance.
