UWGB-UConn: Out of the Doghouse

By Jessica Garrison - March 20, 2007

I'll admit it, I like nothing better than a good upset. Especially over a powerhouse like UConn. But I will also admit relief that tonight's second game didn't stretch into the post-midnight hours, and that I don't have to come up with seven new words for "upset." UConn just walked off the court with a 94-70 win over Green Bay, headed to Fresno looking every bit the top seed.

The Phoenix put up a good fight, better than expected, even, and they look rightfully devastated to have tasted a serious lead over a No. 1 seed in their own house and simply be overwhelmed. Green Bay was really hurt by Nicole Soulis' foul trouble. She was forced to play a little hesitant inside, and she was the best antidote the Phoenix had to Charles inside. Once UConn's shots started falling and Green Bay threw up a few bricks, the crowd at Hartford started to relax into a familiar sense of victory.

Good night from Hartford, y'all. If Geno says anything entertaining, I'll be sure to pass it on.
