It may have been DePaul out there, as in near-the-bottom-of-the-Big-East DePaul. But it was still a Big East road game, and they're never easy to add to the collection.
So the UConn men's basketball team had to work for it. In a quick turnaround from...

The shock and the disappointment were still too fresh for UConn to feel the pride. That will come.
But one more big upset, one more coup to show the country, perhaps once and for all, what they were all about, was in their grasp. It got away and, for...

The first sign that normalcy had returned to UConn was tied in a Windsor knot around Geno Auriemma's neck.
It was a tie, the accessory strangely excluded from Auriemma's business attire during the Big East tournament. And Saturday's was a birthday tie;...

You figured Vanderbilt's hang time in Monday's NCAA Tournament second-round game would vastly surpass that of Idaho on Saturday.

The last time the UConn women's basketball team failed to get to the Sweet Sixteen was March 1993. Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis wasn't born yet.

In the greatest rivalry in women's college basketball history, UConn and Tennessee played 22 times in the 12 years between 1995 and 2007.
