Bracketology Update

By Colin McDonough, Senior Staff Writer

The UConn men’s and women’s basketball teams both are gearing up for the Big East and NCAA tournaments. Here are some of the projected brackets for the Huskies.

According to’s Andy Glockner, the men’s team is projected to start in Washington, D.C. for the first and second rounds of the West region. No. 4 seed UConn is predicted to face SoCon opponent College of Charleston. If the Huskies make it out of the first two rounds, they’d go to Anaheim for regionals where No. 1 seed BYU is in their bracket. The men’s team does not have history on their side if they play in DC. The Huskies have not won at the Verizon Center since beating Washington in the 2006 Sweet Sixteen. But No. 1 seed UConn would be upset in the Elite Eight by George Mason capping one of the most disappointing tournament ousts in school history.

ESPN’s Joe Lunardi sees it differently. UConn is a No. 4 seed in the East region and would play in Newark if they got past Princeton in the first round and either Vanderbilt or UAB in the second round. Instead of Washington, DC, the Huskies would start their path to the Final Four in Tuscon.

The women’s side is pretty simple. UConn has all but received the No. 1 overall seed and will play the first two rounds in Storrs at Gampel Pavilion. If the Huskies make it to regionals they would head to Philadelphia with a Final Four trip to Indianapolis on the line. Duke is projected to be the No. 2 seed in UConn’s bracket by ESPN.
