Hey Nineteen

UConn is ranked No. 19 in both this week's AP and Coaches' Poll. It's the Huskies' first sojourn into the Top 25 in over a year, since Jan. 13, 2007, when they were No. 24. UConn lost its next five games.

Coach Jim Calhoun was happy -- but realistic -- about the Huskies' return to the national rankings.

Said the coach: “I think it is a very nice tribute to the kids and how they bounced back from losing three of four to put together a great stretch of basketball over the last five games. This team has battled through some adversity and it has been our goal to get Connecticut basketball back to its place among the nation’s best teams. Today is a reminder that we are closer to that goal. The ranking doesn’t help us get in the NCAA Tournament or win a BIG EAST Championship, but it does have a great psychological value and is a result of some very hard work by a determined group.”

(P.S. -- Can anyone name the band that recorded the song that serves as the title to this post?)
