n Is there a hotter team in the nation than Connecticut? The Huskies' five victories in five days is the greatest conference tournament performance ever. Jim Calhoun's team is always so tough at tourney time. In a one-game elimination, the Huskies are tough to deal with.n It was Heartbreak Hotel for Saint Mary's, Colorado, Virginia Tech, Alabama, Boston College and Missouri State. I don't understand how Colorado could beat Kansas State three times, as well as Texas and Missouri, and not get in. Nothing against VCU and UAB, but I am shocked they got in. My heart goes out to Tech's Jeff Allen and Malcolm Delaney, who missed out again.
