Kemba Walker Made Michael Kidd-Gilchrist Wear A UConn Shirt

Mick Cronin Needed To Be Separated From Referee Ted Valentine

Mick Cronin was not a happy camper as he watched his No. 11 Cincinnati squad lose 51-45 to unranked UConn.

Cincinnati And UConn Said To Ponder Starting Yet Another…

With the Big East in full meltdown mode, two of the traditional basketball powers are considering a move to the ACC—or, barring that, UConn and Cincinnati will take their ball and go start their own conference, according to The Sporting News.
