HUSKIES CALHOUN CONS COMPETITION: The NEW HAVEN REGISTER reports that after the UConn Huskies recently nearly blew a 19-point lead against tiny Quinnipiac, Huskies coach Jim Calhoun expressed his displeasure with opposing coach Joe DeSantis, who employed a myriad of zone defenses to keep the game close.
Calhoun: “That’s fine, gamesmanship is great. But I just thought it was a (expletive) thing to do to be honest with you. You don’t do that. That’s the only thing that irritated me a little bit. He made a big deal to tell all you guys that he was going to play the way he plays.”
Translation: “How dare Quinnipiac try to win the game?“
