    Chasing Perfection: Injuries piling up for UConn (Ep. 48)

    Chasing Perfection: Injuries piling up for UConn (Ep. 48)

    UConn women’s basketball will be down two players this weekend with Aubrey Griffin (ankle/back) and Azzi Fudd (foot) both sidelined, leaving the Huskies with a relatively short bench. We discuss the impact of both injuries, the opportunities it presents for the other reserves and why we’re concerned about the two players long-term outlook. After that, we look at UConn’s upcoming matchups with Seton Hall and Notre Dame and talk about what we’d consider a successful weekend. We also get into Fudd and Paige Bueckers’ NIL deals, Saylor Poffenbarger’s new home and more.

    Chasing Perfection: Does UConn's loss to South Carolina change anything? (Ep. 47)

    Chasing Perfection: Does UConn's loss to South Carolina change anything? (Ep. 47)

    UConn women’s basketball came out of the Battle 4 Atlantis tournament with a 3-1 record following a pair of wins over Minnesota and No. 23 USF before a loss to No. 1 South Carolina. On this week’s episode, we debate how much the defeat changes our perception of the Huskies (spoiler: not much), whether their abysmal rebounding is to blame and mention how they’ll benefit from the loss. We also look at UConn’s closer-than-expected win over USF and explain why it’s not a concern, rate our level of worry with a handful of players and compare this season to last. Finally, we close with the news of KK Arnold’s commitment to the Huskies, evaluate what we know about her as a player and look at how she fits into the program’s future.

    Chasing Perfection: Exhibition impressions, season predictions (Ep. 45)

    It’s finally here. On Sunday, UConn women’s basketball will take on Arkansas at the XL Center to officially kick off the 2021-22 regular season. That won’t be the first we see of the Huskies, though. This past Sunday, UConn crushed Division II Fort Hays State in an exhibition, giving us our first glimpse of this year’s squad. We discuss our biggest takeaways, look at who impressed (and who didn’t) and try to figure out how much stock we can really put into the performance. After that, we talk recruiting with early signing day on Wednesday. We debate the impact of Kiki Rice’s commitment to UCLA and what we expect out of UConn’s 2022 recruiting class. Finally, we close with our predictions for the season. We guess who will lead the team in a few statistical categories, create impact rankings, forecast the fate of the season and more.

    Chasing Perfection: 2021-22 UConn women’s basketball season preview (Ep. 44)

    The 2021-22 UConn women’s basketball team will take the court for the first time this week. On Sunday, the Huskies will take on Division II Fort Hays State in an exhibition game at Gampel Pavilion, their sole tune-up before the regular season opener on Nov. 14. On this episode, we talk about what we’re most excited to see in that game before getting into our big season preview. We break down the entire roster and attempt to answer some of the biggest questions facing UConn — Will the seniors finally put it all together? Where does Dorka Juhász fit in? Can Paige Bueckers be even better? How much have the returners developed? What can we expect out of the freshmen? We discuss all that and more to get you ready for the new season. Enjoy!

Fantastic if your a UConn WBB fan

This podcast is fantastic for any fan of UConn women’s basketball. The coverage is thoughtful, in-depth, and has a good mix of humor!

All about the women’s team

I’m sorry I wish they had CLEARLY stated that this is only for the WBB team. Pretty useless for me and I am THE biggest Husky fan there is. Not one iota of MBB news and that makes me upset. Podcast deleted, space made in my phone.

Why are you ignoring the men?

I’m very confused as to why chasing perfection has completely taken over this feed.
