I can’t even describe what I saw today. Kemba Walker’s buzzer beating shot absolutely blew the roof off the Garden, and capped off an instant classic that saw the Huskies come back from being down by as much as 12 points early.
I’ve had the good fortune of being at a lot of great sporting events, but this has to be near the top of the list. This was the first time in years that UConn has beaten Pittsburgh, and to do so in the Big East quarterfinals with Pitt being the No. 1 seed? Man…
I think most of you can tell that I’m really excited, and you’d be right. I am a little bummed out that I have to leave to attend to a prior commitment now, but to go out with that being the last memory? Guess I shouldn’t complain. In any case, Colin McDonough will be filling in for me, along with Matt, who’s been on the scene with me for each of the first three games.
Anyway, we’ve got a podcast for you all, along with the links to the last two day’s worth of stories. Shoutout to former DC Sports editor Kevin Duffy, who requested the Connecticast. Thanks for listening Duffy! Also a shoutout to WHUS’s Adam Giardino, who taught me how to actually embed the podcast in the blog post instead of doing it through a link.
