Geno Auriemma rarely has thought a loss was a good thing for his team. Yet the Hall of Fame coach says he thinks Connecticut's two defeats in late February may have saved the Huskies' season. Ever since losing to St. John's at home on senior night and falling to Notre Dame nine days later, UConn (32-4) has been unstoppable. The Huskies cruised to the Big East tournament championship and have rolled through their first three NCAA tournament games. Now the top seed is one victory away from reaching the Final Four for the fifth straight season. UConn will play No. 2 seed Kentucky (28-6) on Tuesday night in the Kingston regional final. The Wildcats are looking for their first trip to the national semifinals.
