Jon Brockman - Washington
The Washington captain believes he finished playing in the Huskies first round game with a broken nose. For people who have never had a broken nose a physical player like this will be effected as he will loose some confidence to battle and you will feel the physical side effects no matter what you do.

Jim Calhoun - Connecticut
The Husky coach missed the game against Chattanooga because he wasn't feeling well. He underwent tests at the hospital, and his condition is currently not known. This could be a major development for a team with real Championship aspirations.
