Why UConn could repeat

ARLINGTON, Texas - Congratulations, Connecticut. You turned the bracket upside down and won this whole thing as a No. 7 seed. No one saw this coming but you, and you proved all the doubters wrong. Savor the moment, because it doesn't get any better than this.

Now the hard part. Can you repeat?

Obviously, when you lose a first-team All-American like Shabazz Napier, your team will face some question marks the following season. Kevin Ollie will also lose three additional seniors besides Napier: Niels Giffey, Lasan Kromah and Tyler Olander. Still, I think Connecticut has a surprisingly good shot at being just as strong in 2014-15 as they were this season -- provided Ollie gets one key break.
