They're No. 4

Cincinnati's charter arrived at Bradley Airport at about 9:30 p.m. So, game on for tomorrow at 6 p.m. in Storrs.

The game took on slightly less significance following Notre Dame’s win at South Florida tonight. The Irish clinched third place and the No. 3 seed in the Big East tournament with the win, meaning UConn will finish fourth and be the No. 4 seed. That means the Huskies will play at 2 p.m. on Thursday against the winner of the previous day’s No. 5 vs. No. 12 game. West Virginia will be the No. 5 seed, and either Providence or DePaul will be No. 12.

If DePaul wins at Pittsburgh tomorrow at noon, DePaul gets the 12th seed. If DePaul loses, Providence is in.

Assuming DePaul loses tomorrow, the big question is: Would the Huskies rather play 22-9, 11-7 West Virginia, a team likely headed to the NCAA tournament, or Kryptonite ... er, Providence, a team' that's 15-15, 6-12 but has beaten UConn three straight times, twice this season?
