There is no sugar-coating the UConn men’s basketball team’s recent slide.
The Huskies have dropped three straight for the first time in three years, and five of their last six overall. Ranked No. 2 in the nation less than a month ago, UConn is now No. 6 in the Big East, behind Seton Hall after Wednesday night’s “heartbreaking” collapse, only a half-game ahead of perennial doormat DePaul and a game ahead of Butler, whom it faces on Sunday in Hartford.
