UConn Very Much in Big East Regular Season Title Hunt
Even if the Huskies could somehow survive the departures of Andre Drummond and Jeremy Lamb and Alex Oriakhi and Roscoe Smith, surely they would lose interest in the postseason-less campaign by now, right?
Wrong. UConn is still very much in the regular-season title hunt, just a game behind front-runners Syracuse, Georgetown and Marquette. With eight games left, the 7-4 Huskies don't have much margin for error -- one more loss, maybe two. But at this point, would you bet against this likable, hard-fighting team?
Here are the conference standings entering Thursday night's action:
Notre Dame 8-4
St. John's 7-5
Seton Hall 2-10
