Only three of ND's players are at or above 6' and only one is as tall as 6'3" (Achonwa). One is only 5'4" (Holloway) and the others are between 5'8" and 5'11".
UConn has six players over 6' and four who are 6'3" or taller. Their tallest are Dolson (6'5") and Stewart (6'4").
I don't think I've ever seen elite men's teams towering over their top competition the way that UConn towers over ND.
