Clip Reel: The UConn Huskies


Ironically, everyone is looking up at him and his crew.

What is "Clip Reel?"

Seemed like a problem this season: when a team became newly-minted as No. 1, they went out and dropped a game. That easily could have happened to Connecticut on Monday night: they were playing a fellow Top 10 squad in Louisville. Instead, the Huskies rolled. Conventional wisdom in November said the final Monday night would be Roy Williams vs. Jim Calhoun for all the marbles; there are certainly other teams in that wintry mix right now (Wake, Oklahoma, Duke to name a few) but we wanted to take a little look at UConn hoops while they hold the throne.

Here's their official team site. ESPN.Com clubhouse page. Here's the UConn landing page on the Hartford Courant's website. History of the basketball program, via Wikipedia. Jim Calhoun's Wiki. Here's a tribute video for this season. Because we couldn't resist: Ray Allen vs. Allen Iverson from '96. A good Huskies tribute "vid." Some older Thabeet highlights. Video on Thabeet's roots. Thabeet dancing by a Blimpie. Interview with Thabeet. Good Thabeet video here. Here's a feature on AJ Price. His ridiculous shots against Gonzaga. This video is simply slugged "AJ Price MVP." Jeff Adrien tribute video. This is a more generic team tribute video. Highlights of UConn beating Seton Hall this year feature pretty much everyone doing something. A decent, if brief, Kemba Walker mix. Here's a video we did with Kemba Walker last spring. This is a good column on UConn hoops. Here's the feature (video + editorial) we ran in the college basketball preview issue.
