Bison get respect from UConn coach
Sounds like Jim Calhoun has already figured out who he does not want to meet in the first round. The UConn coach told the New Haven Register:
You watch a team like Bucknell (in its 61-57 win over Holy Cross in the Patriot League final Friday). They can frustrate you. Now you're down 10 and they pack it in, and you're not making a shot. That could be a scary moment for a good team. If you can't accelerate the pace, then it can be very difficult to win.Of course given the similarities between Bucknell and Holy Cross, that comes as no surprise. Calhoun has told Willard there is no way he would agree to a game with the Crusaders until Willard starts using a defense his team can figure out.
