ND still upbeat despite missed chance
STORRS, Conn. -- The game was over. Connecticut was using a timeout in the final two seconds so the fans could applaud the seniors and to give its walk-ons a chance to appear in the Huskies' 72-65 win over Notre Dame on senior day.
But Fighting Irish coach Mike Brey didn't waste a single second in the huddle. He made sure he reminded his team what would be at stake Monday night when they host Villanova: An eighth Big East win and a chance to go to the NCAA tournament.
