Connecticut-Syracuse

Hakim Warrick has a solid first half, but he and his Orange teammates aren't doing enough on the boards. Connecticut, the nation's best rebounding team, continues to amass second chance opportunities and points. Other thoughts:

-- Is it just me, or is Jim Calhoun getting meaner with each passing year?
-- Mike Jarvis should be transferred to ESPN Deportes. He'll make more sense in Spanish
-- Marcus Williams has become a fun player to watch.
-- The officials should have given Billy Edelin the timeout he tried to call while jumping into the Huskies' bench.
-- No halftime prediction was more outlandish than Digger Phelps' suggestion that Notre Dame will beat Boston College tomorrow night behind a big game from Chris "2 for 12" Thomas.

Update: Several months into his gig at ESPN, Mike Jarvis finally made an intelligent statement, or at least asked a perceptive question. During halftime, he inquired why Connecticut rose six spots in the latest ESPN/USA Today Coaches Poll. The Huskies haven't beaten anybody (except Villanova).
