    UConn Opens With Victory In Exhibition Game Against AIC, 78-63
    Before Kevin Ollie walked out onto Gampel Pavilion, George Blaney handed him a little note that said, "Enjoy it." Ollie took his time. He walked out slowly, his staff behind him to a warm round of cheers. "I don't know if I enjoyed it," he said. "When...
  • UConn Puts In Full Effort In 100-62 Win Over UMass Lowell

    — For UConn, on many levels, this was more like it. "That's the way it's supposed to play out," said Ryan Boatright, after scoring 22 points in the Huskies' 100-62 victory over UMass Lowell on Sunday in their second and final exhibition game. "We'...

    No Letdown In Huskies' 67-49 Win Over Vermont
    The Huskies held up their end. No jet lag, no letdown, no excuses. They just punched in and conducted business rather briskly on Tuesday night, beating Vermont 67-49 before 7,963 in their home opener at Gampel Pavilion. "This was a grind-it-out game,"...
  • UConn Overcomes Some Issues To Beat Wake Forest

    UConn Overcomes Some Issues To Beat Wake Forest
    The Huskies arrived in their locker room to find the simplest of messages on the chalkboard: "Find a way." "That, to me, means find a way to help your team even if you're not scoring," Shabazz Napier said. "Find a way to get a rebound. It was kind of...

    UConn Men Use Strong Second Half To Top Stony Brook, 73-62
    – There is no reason to believe otherwise — what UConn achieves in men's basketball this season will come with great effort and resourcefulness. One player is shut down, or injured, another must step in. One element doesn't work, another way...
  • UConn Struggles To Get Past New Hampshire, 61-53

    UConn Struggles To Get Past New Hampshire, 61-53
    The Huskies stayed a step ahead of their competition — but just a step ahead. Like a runner in a road race who wanted company, rather than a great finishing time, they never did pull away from New Hampshire. "Whatever the competition is, that's...
  • Bigger, Faster N.C. State Beats UConn, 69-65

    Bigger, Faster N.C. State Beats UConn, 69-65
    The Huskies made North Carolina State work for it. They sprawled for loose balls, clawed for what rebounds they could get and made more than their share of steals. But in the end, the Wolfpack had too many answers and beat UConn 69-65 in the Jimmy V....
  • UConn Beats Harvard, 57-49

    UConn Beats Harvard, 57-49
    Very little escapes the eyes of Shabazz Napier. He saw within a few minutes the way this game was going, saw that Harvard was not going to give him opportunities to score, and more important, he noticed "the look" in DeAndre Daniels. "Once he started...
  • UConn Tops Maryland Eastern Shore, 84-50

    UConn Tops Maryland Eastern Shore, 84-50
    Omar Calhoun's season had hit a snag, not unusual for a freshman. There was only one way out of it. "I got back into the gym every night," said Calhoun, who established a career high with 22 points in UConn's 84-50 victory over Maryland Eastern Shore at...
  • Huskies Take Advantage Of Points Off Turnovers To Beat Fordham, 88-73

    Huskies Take Advantage Of Points Off Turnovers To Beat Fordham, 88-73
    A steal by Enosch Wolf, a pass ahead to Ryan Boatright, who dished up behind his back to Omar Calhoun for a layup — this was UConn's brand of basketball for much of Friday night. That basket gave UConn a 32-point lead, and the Huskies were playing...
  • UConn Men Fall In Big East Opener At Marquette, 82-76 In Overtime

    UConn Men Fall In Big East Opener At Marquette, 82-76 In Overtime
    UConn's first Big East game under coach Kevin Ollie had a little of everything — physical play, dramatic shots and not one, but two, Husky comebacks. And it had an officials' blunder that all could have done without. But all of this figured into...
  • UConn Men Upset Notre Dame, 65-58

    UConn Men Upset Notre Dame, 65-58
    The home team had grappled back from six points behind to tie the game, and Purcell Pavilion was getting loud. An intimidating scene for most teams, perhaps, but this UConn men's basketball team has shown several times now that it is cut from unusually...
