Kevin Ollie Ends A Crazy UConn Comeback Bid By Making It Rain Stat Sheets All Over The Court

CBTUConn cut a 16 point lead to three in five minutes of game time. They had all the momentum. Even after Maryland’s two free throws — Trimble missed one of them, by the way — UConn still would have had a chance to win. Technically, they still did after the technical foul, but it just seemed to take the wind out of UConn’s sails. After a missed jumper from Hamilton, Rasheed Sulaimon scored on a driving layup and UConn would never get closer than six the rest of the way.

Jimmy V Classic. Huge matchup with the #6 team in the country on what has basically become your home court. 2:44 left. 13-2 run in the past 4 minutes to cut it to 3. All the momentum, crowd behind you, comeback almost complete…time to make it rain!

Tech that squashed all the good mojo and quickly lead to a 10 point loss.

Yeah it’s just 1 point, but ask anyone who watched that game – it was the death blow. Or ask Mark Turgeon.

“The technical definitely helped,” Terps coach Mark Turgeon said. “There’s no doubt about it. It gave us an extra point, but it helped us stem the tide a little bit.”

Meanwhile Ollie don’t give a shit.

Ollie, for what it’s worth, wasn’t apologetic for the technical foul, nor did he think it changed anything in the game.

“I don’t think it changed [momentum],” he said. “Melo was going to the foul line anyway.”

“I just hit the stand where the stats people were at, and my hand caught the papers. I slapped that and the papers went flying.”

Guy is a great coach, players and fans love him, got more than enough passion and psychosis in him –

Probably need to pick better times to make it rain stat sheets though.

UConn has now lost 3 of their last 4, and their best win is probably over Michigan who just lost to SMU by 24. If this was the College Football Playoff the committee would be frowning on the Huskies is what I’m saying.
