UConn is the real blue blood now

Especially with the juxtaposition of the current turmoil at Kentucky, there is no question Connecticut has become one of the true defining blue bloods of men’s college basketball.

A program that top recruits and transfer-portal players gravitate toward. A program where the head coach can mold them into winners.

A program that has an unquestioned air of invincibility right now.

With a sixth national title in the past quarter-century and its second in a row courtesy of Monday night’s 75-60 win over Purdue in Glendale, Ariz., UConn has to be considered in the same class or better than traditional super-programs such as Kentucky, Kansas, Duke and North Carolina.
