Connecticut has already knocked off some great basketball teams and has a great record to go along with that. Its key victories on the season have come against Florida and Indiana. Its record is 11-1, with its only loss coming against the Stanford Cardinal by two points.
Shabazz Napier has been one of the best players in college basketball so far and his clutch buzzer-beater against the Gators shows that. Plus, he is averaging 15.4 points per game, 6.3 rebounds per game and 5.9 assists per game–leads the team in all of those categories.
The Huskies are back in the national spotlight and they are one of the top teams in college hoops, hence the No. 15 ranking in both major polls.
As you can see, Connecticut has gotten off to a pretty good start this year. It was not allowed to make the NCAA tournament last season, but it should have no problem achieving that feat this season.
Louisville may have two losses already, but it will more than likely be the favorite in the AAC entering conference play. Still, Connecticut will enter with a bunch of positives and it should have no problem finishing in the top three in the standings. This team is a serious threat for not only a conference title, but a national title as well.
