It's fun to go back and look at just how long the "uconn 1st half auto fade" has been effective. Here's there 2006 2nd half of the season. Notice how few losses they have, yet so many close or losing half time scores. Many of the 2 or 3 point leads at half, would not have covered the spread. Pay particular attention to the stretch Jan 28-Feb 23rd, they didn't cover the 1st half in any of those, yet outscored their opponent in the 2nd half, in all but one case....
