A Look at Tonight's UConn-UNH Game ... and Some ACC Talk

Greetings from the XL Center, in advance of tonight's UConn-UNH game. Here's my gameday from today's Register on the game.

The Huskies are looking to go a perfect 3-0 vs. America East foes this season. And while UConn has already had some tougher-than-expected battles with teams from low-majors (Quinnipiac, Stony Brook) and could still have a couple more this season, this isn't likely to be one of them. The Wildcats have lost to Bryant (which did beat Boston College) and NJIT (which did nearly beat Providence) already this season.

Elsewhere, we've read a few places that Jim Boeheim wasn't a proponent of UConn joining the ACC, and we've heard from a pretty good source that this is true. Also hearing that Boeheim has, at least in the past, related these feelings to a certain Coach K, with whom he's good buddies as an assistant on Team USA, and that the Duke coach likely wasn't on UConn's side in joining the conference, either.

So this is a little of what UConn is up against.

This is a huge story if this is true. Calhoun and Boeheim are supposed to be close friends. Calhoun needs to be asked about this
