(NECN: Storrs, Conn.) - The Connecticut Huskies are gearing up for their first Final Four game since 2009. They will take on the Kentucky Wildcats Saturday night.

Speaking at a shoot-around Tuesday, Coach Jim Calhoun said he was not impressed the talent in this year's tournament, saying players leaving early for the NBA has had an impact.

"There are no great college basketball teams, I've had a great basketball team," says Calhoun. "If Kentucky had a couple of kids back from last year, that's a heck of a basketball team."
