How to Lose the Right Way

No one likes losing. That includes me. Unfortunately, there will come a time when you will lose. But you know what—It’s not how you fall. It’s how you GET — BACK — UP.

UConn came into this basketball season as reigning National Champions, the number 1 ranking and a long winning streak. No one expected the Husky’s to come out of the game against Stanford with a loss. But they did.

They are working on the little things. They are working on getting better. They are working on finding a leader.
