UMBC-UConn: Hartford Hoopla

By Jessica Garrison - March 18, 2007

I gotta be honest -- as much as the crowd here at the Hartford Civic Center has quadrupled, maybe quintupled from this morning's turnout, I can't help thinking I've seen better attendance at UConn home games here mid-season. Then again, those rarely fall at 9:30 on a school night. Still, the crowd is solid and the underdogs are holding their own, both in the stands and on the court.

It's 8-5 in UConn's favor at the first media time out. First impressions? Man, Tina Charles is good. Woah, I wonder if this is going to get rough after a couple of physical tangles under the basket here early on. Wow, does this 16 seed actually think it stands a chance? Their band's playing the Spiderman theme song, and if Peter Parker isn't a successful underdog, I don't know who is.
