A First Time For Everything

By Jeff Lippman - January 21, 2007


Today marks the first time that I have covered a game from the legendary Madison Square Garden. It also marks the first game the UConn women have ever played in the World's Most Famous Arena.

St. John's University is hosting a day-night doubleheader with the Red Storm men taking on Syracuse in the opening contest followed by the women's matchup of St. John's-Connecticut.

You know you are growing in the mind's eye of the nation when the "showcase" game of the day is the women's basketball game and not the men's.

In either case, Geno Auriemma and his Huskies want to show New York City who the most talented team to take the court today really is. And if the choices are Syracuse and both St. John's teams, my money is on Connecticut.

Shoot, if the Knicks were here today, I'd still take UConn.
