UConn vs. Saint Mary’s prediction
Dan Hurley won’t be denied a spot in the second week of the tournament again.
In a battle of lockdown defenses, UConn’s vastly superior offense — which exploded for 50 second-half points against Iona, turning a two-point deficit into a 24-point win — will be the difference.
The Gaels have lost three of their four games as underdogs, while the Huskies went 20-11-1 against the spread as a favorite this season.

UConn, which also covered five of six games on neutral courts, will enjoy an atmosphere more akin to a home game in nearby Albany.
