MEMPHIS — After a difficult season defined by adversity and heartbreak, the first year of the Dan Hurley era has come to an end. The UConn men’s basketball team was dominated by No. 1 seed Houston on Friday, 84-45, bouncing the Huskies in the second round of the American Athletic Conference Tournament.

With just a day to prepare for the nationally-ranked No. 11 Houston and still without starting guard Alterique Gilbert, the Huskies can’t hang their heads after the loss. But losing by 39 points certainly doesn’t make that any easier—it’s the worst conference tournament loss UConn has ever had.
