UConn hosts No. 11 Cincinnati at noon at the XL, and next week are at No. 7 Louisville with a game against Rutgers in between.
From there, it's looking like the most likely scenario is the Huskies will face No. 21 Memphis in Memphis in the quarterfinals of the AAC tournament.
It's a tough road. UConn could be facing the top of the AAC -- all ranked teams -- for five out of the next six games if it makes a run in the AAC tournament.
That's exactly what the Huskies need going into the NCAA tournament.
UConn (22-6, 10-5 AAC) is right now 29th in the RPI. The Huskies are a 6-7 seed heading into the stretch of games. A couple of losses and the 8/9 game is possible. But, if UConn gets on a roll there is an opportunity to rocket up the RPI and the subsequent NCAA seedings. Cincinnati is 18th in RPI, Louisville 28th and Memphis 39th while SMU is 36th.
That's a lot of opportunity for the Huskies to make a move up the RPI with Top 50 wins.
A four seed or above would protect the Huskies regionally in round of 64 and 32. If the Huskies can get on a roll, things can change dramatically in a couple of weeks.
The games will be tough, starting today, but no risk, not reward.
