Why can’t UNH basketball be more like UConn? Are the demographics between these two New England states all that different that one university system can support a perennial national championship contending DI basketball program while the other struggles to remain competitive in the America East Conference? Does it come down to interest? UNH is a hockey school with a basketball problem whereas UConn has used the basketball program(s) to help their football team emerge as this year’s Big East favorite for a BCS bowl bid.
I may live in Connecticut but I grew up in New Hampshire and can tell you that I would love to see the Wildcat basketball program become a regional power. For tonight however, please Huskies take mercy on our Granite State souls! Share your views.
