There will be a new national champ this year. UConn is NIT-bound

And so, as you likely know by now, after UConn's 62-54 loss to SMU in the AAC championship game on Sunday, the Huskies are NIT-bound. They'll face Arizona State on Wednesday at 7 p.m. at Gampel in their first-round game, and they promise to be up for it, despite the disappointment of not being able to defend their national title.

And somehow, I forgot to put this Kevin Ollie quote in my story:

Q. Is it going to be hard for them to gear up for (the NIT)?

COACH OLLIE: Why? You put on a UConn jersey. If you can't get gered up, then i don't want you on my team. So, no, you put on a UConn jersey, it's important when you put that jersey on and that's my message.

Here's NIT ticket info. Tickets are a real bargain:

Tickets for Wednesday night’s first round game vs. Arizona State are priced at $10 apiece and $4 for UConn students.

UConn Club members and Husky season tickets holders can purchase tickets at during an exclusive time period of Sunday night through Monday at noon.

Tickets to the general public will go on sale Monday at noon at and will have the ability to select their seats and print tickets at home. Tickets can also be purchased by visiting the UConn Ticket Office in Storrs or by calling the UConn Ticket Office at 1-877-AT-UCONN from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Tough to swallow. Boatright had an incredible Uconn career and should be remembered for his toughness and excellent guard play that helped win a national championship. However, to quote Larry David...having said that, his leadership was suspect at points. His body language was terrible in the SMU game and he got into it with the referees too much. I imagine it's tough to rally around a player like that. Perhaps the bitterness of not making the tournament, as well as recently witnessing the likes of Shabazz and Kemba do the miraculous, is skewing my opinion. Regardless, it will be nice to see someone else take the reigns. The question of who that will be is anyone's guess at this point.
