Calhoun is one of the best college basketball coaches ever. To see Uconn fade away the last couple years had been sad. It would be nice to see their program step it back up again. Calhoun made them elite for many many years.
To see UConn fade away the last couple of years?
In the last 4 seasons, they made 3 NCAA appearances, 2 Final Fours, and won 1 Championship. They kind of crapped out last year, but started the season ranked #4.
He's also had guys drafted every year in the last 4 drafts, with 3 of the last 4 of drafts having lottery picks from UConn. Overall 6 guys drafted in the last 4 drafts, plus another two going undrafted but still making the NBA.
UConn has yet to fade away. They've consistently been a national powerhouse and an NBA prospect factory. Now if you want to say starting this season they're going to completely fall off the face of the earth, I wouldn't argue with you.
