They're back!

The Connecticut Huskies (20-12, 8-10 Big East) advanced to the quarterfinals of the Big East tournament to face top seed Syracuse Orange (30-1, 17-1 Big East).

The Orange may have won both regular season matchups, but the Huskies have now won 13 straight postseason games and look to continue their magical run of success against the conference favorite.
