Fresh off winning the 2014 National Championship, things are looking good for the Connecticut Huskies. Although Prince Ali uncommitted from UConn last week, the Huskies were able to bring back Kevin Ollie for another five, even though there were rumors about him leaving for the NBA. Ollie is a special coach and he has the ability to win another championship in the next five years. Here are five games you must watch next season.
UConn and Cincinnati were once members of the high-powered Big East conference, but they are both stranded now in the American. Sean Kilpatrick's time in Cincinnati is done, but the Bearcats are still a quality opponent for the Huskies in terms of their RPI.
SMU got the best of UConn in their matchups in 2013. The Mustangs are bringing back Nic Moore, and they are also bringing in five-star recruit Emmanuel Mudiay. SMU got snubbed out of making the NCAA Tournament, but they are a formidable team and a bad matchup for the Huskies. This one has the makings of a good rivalry for years to come.
Stanford gave UConn its first loss in 2013, and the Cardinal made it to the Sweet 16 last year in the tournament before losing to the red-hot Dayton Flyers. Dwight Powell is going pro, but the combination of Chasson Randle and Josh Huestis will be back in 2014. Like SMU, Stanford is a tough opponent for the Huskies.
The Florida Gators were one of the best teams in college basketball last year, but the Huskies got the best of them twice, the first in December and the second in the Final Four. UConn and Florida set up a home-and-home series before last year, and UConn will have to travel south to play a good Florida team led by one of the best coaches in college in Billy Donovan.
Duke is annually one of the best teams in college basketball. Their 2014-15 team will be no different with incoming freshman Tyus Jones and Jahlil Okafor. UConn will have a good team next season, but this game will by far be their biggest test next season. The coaching battle between Ollie and Mike Krzyzewski will also be a fun one.
