Q: Dom, what is the news on the recruiting front? Who are KO and UConn targeting? And what are realistic chances of the Huskies landing these prospects?
A: Hi Jeff. The main development this week was Daniel Hamilton’s visit. Hamilton, 6-foot-6, the brother of Jordan Hamilton and a very highly rated shooting guard [...]
Q: Will the new league have a automatic bid to the NCAA tournament for next year or will they have to wait? Also wht do you think the chances of holding the tournament in Hartford in the future will be?
A: Yes, Mark, the American Athletic Conference, AAC or Americon, will have an automatic [...]
Q: Of the three recruits [UConn has] coming in next season, who do you think could have the biggest immediate impact?
A: Jeff, logic would dicatate it would have to be Kentan Facey. He made great strides during his high school season at Long Island Lutheran and appears to be the more advanced [...]
Q: Why did they schedule the basketball game the same night as the UConn-Louisville football game? I would have gone to both if not on the same night.
A: Well, John, it’s not ideal, but Nov. 8 was the day the Barclays Center scheduled for this game, so UConn has no choice [...]
Q: Dom, with 20 wins overall and 10 in the Big East Conference, “if” Uconn was playing in the NCAA Tournament this year what seed would they be?
A: Well, JT, glad you asked, because it gives me a chance to link to the story I did for the Sunday Courant. The brackets [...]
Q: Dom, I may be asking too much, but can you address the issue on how difficult it will be for recruiting because of the conference alignment. I hope I I’m wrong but my instinct tells me we may not be able to compete (with) the major conferences for the elite players.
Q: Dom, are you aware of a source for DVD’s or tapes of UConn tournament games such as the 2011 Big East tournament and the 2011 NCAA Final Four?
B: The UConn store has a collection of DVDs available here. Don’t know if they have specific ones you’re looking for, but [...]
Q: Can UConn play in the N.I.T.
A: No, Chas, UConn’s postseason ban is all inclusive. The NIT, and the other postseason tournaments, the CBI and CIT, are all affilaited, sanctioned, in one way another with the NCAA. The Huskies’ season is over.
Q: I saw you mentioned the Thanksgiving tourney next year at MSG that includes IU. In light of the collapse of the conference, I’m hopeful that you will report Uconn has a lot of tough non-conference games scheduled in the upcoming years. So, who can we expect to see the Huskies be playing [...]
Q: … I have a couple of questions. You know when ESPN does a team’s resume during a game and they list “bad losses”? Do UConn men have any “bad losses” this season? Also, I am wondering if the team is also barred from the NIT. I am assuming they are, but I don’t ever remember [...]
