'Why Not Us?!?!'
Just watched UConn's pregame layup drill and, for what it's worth, I've never seen Jerome Dyson so vocal. "Why not? Why not us?!?!" he kept shouting. Seriously, the kid was pumped, and his teammates (particularly Ater Majok) seemed to respond with some extra intensity to their usually mundane layup lines.
Does this mean the Huskies will win tonight? Of course not. But I can tell you right now that Dyson will come out with a lot of energy and vocal leadership. That's a guarantee.
