TOO CLOSE FOR COMFORT

I saw the lead in the first half of the UC-West Virginia game and thought this lead won't last on the road in the Big East. But it was enough, I thought, to withstand the inevitable "run" that most teams make at home. Alas, UC couldn't maintain the lead and lost a tough, need to win game, to the Mountaineers and former UC chief Bob Huggins. It makes the tournament ticket a little harder to get; kind of like trying to get tickets to a sold out show. Its possible but you have to have some connections to make it happen. In this case connections are "wins and friends"; wins in the tournament and friends on the selection committee who are sympathetic of your plight. 

I don't know what the end looks like but I'm trying to find something to embrace about this team and their recent struggles so I simply say at least we're still in the NCAA conversation when other aren't. I know for many of you that's not good enough point taken, but if you were DePaul or even UC of several years ago you would acknowledge the improvement amidst the frustration. With the Big East tournament coming up the only thing that works in UC's favor is that they CAN play with the better teams in the conference but have to find a way to play with them for 40 minutes. That will give them the best shot of getting that hard to find ticket and giving us something to celebrate other than possibilities. Yes, I'm still rooting for them but that's what fans and friends do...

That's the way I see it sitting in The Box Seat
