TheRoundUp 11/4: Huskies win with room to improve

UConn Rolls Past AIC In Exhibition - CTnow
UConn coach Jim Calhoun saw some things he liked, others he didn't and has an awful lot to consider moving forward. "At least we have some form of a frame of reference," Calhoun said.

The Day - Calhoun sees positives as the Huskies get started
Jogging out during pre-game introductions Wednesday, freshman Tyler Olander looked a bit confused, and understandably so. No one told Olander, the first UConn player out on the Gampel Pavilion floor, where to go. Freshman Jeremy Lamb followed next with an equally lost look. "I had no idea what to do when they called my name first," Olander said. "After I slapped everybody's hands I didn't know where to go so I just stood there. … That was a little confusing."

Joe Perez was not as impressed with the Huskies as I was. He also might want to check his math. This is from his story: "Had it not been for the one-sided free throw numbers, be sure, UConn would have lost." (UConn, for the record, made 20 more FTs than AIC. They took 19 more than AIC. They beat AIC by 38 points. I don't think it was all free throws Joe.)

"We're much healthier as a program with the players we have now,'' Calhoun said. "I believe in UConn. I love the program, and I like this team. I don't know how good we're going to be. I'm not sure we can overcome the youthfulness. We're not a good team right now, but eventually we will be.''

The Day - UConn's Campbell suspended
Campbell, who was going to start for the Huskies before tearing his right ACL during the first training camp scrimmage in August, sat out last season with academic issues.

Minnesota Lynx hope No. 1 draft pick can return franchise to playoffs - ESPN
