The RAC Sells Out


UConn's win in Philly over No. 3 Villanova Monday was not only its biggest of the season.

"It was certainly our biggest 'away' win," Jim Calhoun said with a smile on Thursday, knowing full well it was also the Huskies' first true road win.

It won't be easy to get their second tomorrow against Rutgers. For one, the Scarlet Knights have won five of their last six, including a home upset of No. 10 Georgetown. And the RAC, which used to be one of the toughest places in league to play, may harken back to days of yore on Saturday. The game is sold out to the general public (though a limited number of student tickets remain available).

Why is the RAC no longer so tough to play in? Never been, just wondering.

Of those acts, I'd say the Dead, easily (though it's hard to think of them as a Connecticut band). Wasn't Robert Hunter their lyricist?

Weezer's a strong No. 2. A friend of mine is really into a true Connecticut band, The Swaggerts, though I've only heard a little bit of their stuff.
