Actually, UConn leads by 9, which doesn't make it sound like it's that close of a game. But it was just a couple of minutes ago that Mason did briefly hold the lead, before UConn started burying three-balls like Larry Bird on All-Star Saturday Night. After that, the Huskies responded to close the half on a 15-5 run and they lead 43-34 at the half.
Jai Lewis is leading the Patriots with 10 points, and Jeff Adrien has the same total for UConn. UConn is 5-of-9 from beyond the arc and they're shooting 55% from the floor. It's also worth noting that Jim Calhoun has kept his whining to a minimum, a stark contrast to Friday night, when he cried like... well, kinda like Adam Morrison.
It's still do-able, Mason. Hang in there, fellas.
