The blatant favoritism needs to stop

UConn hasn’t really been a force for a few years now, but the Husky pandering continues. It’s ridiculous.

This week’s AP top 25 poll came out today, and despite losing for the first time this season last week, UConn is still No. 3. I have never seen a team lose and not drop at least one spot in the poll.

Then the Wooden Award late season watch list was released. There’s one freshman on it, and guess where she’s from? Yep, the team in Storrs. And Paige Bueckers isn’t statistically the best newcomer in her class; that honor belongs to Iowa’s Caitlin Clark. But Bueckers plays for the Huskies.

The UConn fawning keeps other players and teams from getting their deserved shine. It needs to stop.
