The UConn Huskies are a team I had my eye on early in the season, and they're starting to see things come together with an aggressive defense and an offense that has a great deal of potential. The DePaul Blue Demons are having a hard time finding their footing right now, and while the potential is there, this isn't a spot where things are going to click. UConn is a team that's going to get better as the season drags out. I'll lay the reasonable number with the Huskies.
