“I don’t even think like that,” senior Jalen Adams said when asked whether he’s thought about Thursday’s game as potentially his final in a UConn uniform. “I just have that confidence that we’re gonna win whatever game we’re going to if we do the right things.”
For those who are just waking up from a long sleep, UConn (13-12, 4-8 The American) has not won a road game this season. Ever since dropping an overtime thriller at Cincinnati, no game away from Connecticut has even been a close contest. But the Mustangs (12-12, 4-8 The American) have suffered three straight heartbreaking losses in the final seconds of the five-game losing streak—they lost on a buzzer-beater with one second left against Wichita St. on Jan. 30.
