UConn's crazy stat of the day

One of the things that caught my eye when I was doing my research on South Carolina is that in six games against ranked teams, the Gamecocks have drawn an average of 25 fouls per game (actually 24.5) including 29 called against Ohio State and Texas.

With that information, I started looking and UConn has lost its last seven games when being called for at least 24 fouls

Jan. 15, 2001 UConn called for 32 fouls and lost 92-76 at Notre Dame
Feb. 1, 2001: UConn called for 30 fouls and lost 92-88 at Tennessee
Mar. 30, 2001: UConn called for 28 fouls and lost 90-75 to Notre Dame in the Final Four
Jan. 7, 2006: UConn called for 30 fouls and lost 89-80 at Tennessee
Jan. 15, 2007: UConn called for 25 fouls and lost 82-76 at North Carolina
Mar. 4, 2013: UConn called for 27 fouls and lost 96-87 in triple overtime at Notre Dame
Nov. 17, 2014: UConn called for 24 fouls and lost 88-86 in overtime at Stanford

Obviously other than the Final Four loss to Notre Dame, the other games have been on the road.

My hope is that this is the last I have to write about fouls today and the top players from both teams can play for as long as their coaches want them in there.
