SI has UConn ranked 19th
Of course, I've never turned to SI as any sort of Bible of college hoops. But take it as you will.
The magazine has the Huskies second in the AAC to SMU, and projects UConn as a fifth seed for the NCAA tournament. It's got two AAC teams in the tourney (UConn and Cincy; SMU is, of course, ineligible). And, of course, the first team out -- Tulsa, an AAC team.
