UConn will face Arizona in the second edition of the Carrier Classic.

A source told that the Huskies opponent is expected to be Sean Miller and the Wildcats - a team that will likely challenge for a Final Four berth a year from now.

A contract hasn't been signed yet, but the date will likely be Nov. 9, 2012.

This year's inaugural Carrier Classic will feature top-ranked North Carolina and Michigan State on an aircraft carrier in San Diego on Veteran's Day - Nov. 11.

The court will be surrounded by seating for about 7,000 fans, with most of the tickets going to active military personnel.

Shot at a 4th ring!!  Well said Calhounshuskies.  It makes me so pissed when all these idiot run their mouths about how Uconn cheats and blah blah blah.  They called one delinquent kid too many times!!!  get over it!!  Everyone is just jealous cuz they cant compete. Uconn will be back at it again this year and should be right back in the Final Four where we know Jimmy C dominates.  Go Huskies!!!

UConn vs. Arizona in 2012 Carrier Classic

Leave it to a MSU fan to make cracks about another program and it's kids getting in trouble with the law (Dion Sims, Glen Winston) in recent years. Nice to see your golden boy Mark Dantonio really polices that football program. Ski masks and torching couches is a must to become a Spartan!!!!! I know Tom Izzo wouldn't put up with that!!!!!

UConn vs. Arizona in 2012 Carrier Classic

UCONN (the irony found even in their handle!!) should be the big cheese in the Big Least for the next few seasons. Last year was a "stars aligned perfectly" kind of year for the Huskies in winning the NCAAs. The basketball program will eventually head in the direction of their football program, lousy, as they stay in the second tier conference that the Big Least is becoming......................

UConn vs. Arizona in 2012 Carrier Classic

Name one criminal, or are you referring to the coach who has done more for Cancer research than any single person in the state?  Last "criminal" they had was AJ "where's my laptop" Price.  He made a big mistake as a dumb FRESHMAN and spent the rest of his time at UCONN living that mistake down and leading his team by example.  Every team has transgressions and makes mistakes, they all push the envelope, some have better control of their assistants than others.  Some run a tighter ship than others.  A few bad eggs took advantage of the fact that Jim's getting older and doesn't oversee every interaction of every assistant and booster that works with the team.

And scumbag, your talking about an average recruit that never played for the team.  Let the jealousy flow, we got a national championship WITHOUT a top 10 recruiting class in the last 5 years, thats called GREAT coaching.  Imagine what he could do with Pitino's group of knuckle dragging academic all-americans?  They never, ever have the studs coming through that Duke, NC, Kentucky, or even Texas have coming through.  Dudes want to go where it's warm or where they feel it's the best shot to go lottery as a freshman.  Calhoun builds TEAMS, he recruits guys that will stick around for a few years, (Drummond not withstanding, CT guy who is offering a 70 year old coach one more shot at a 3'rd ring) and play as a team.

Best program in the country, bar none.  Ask Kentucky.....TWICE!
