Drummond Grateful: UConn Basketball's Andre Drummond Is Grateful For Michael Bradley's Generosity - Courant.com
"You'll sacrifice anything if you want something bad enough," said Bradley, who gave up his scholarship so Drummond could join the team. "It's an opportunity for me to get better, to go against a guy [in practice] every day who they're talking about as a top 10 NBA pick."

Jeff Jacobs: UConn Basketball, Men And Women, Have New Stars, Jeff Jacobs Says - Courant.com
We have seen this before, of course. There was the pairing of Emeka Okafor and Diana Taurasi in 2004. Last season, there was Walker and Moore. And while we are talking freshmen here, no two arrive with more fanfare. Mosqueda-Lewis arrives from Southern California as consensus national player of the year. Although he arrives in a most circuitous route, Drummond comes from down the street as the most coveted big man in the nation.

UConn Women: Injury bug hits Caroline Doty yet again- The Register Citizen
Bothered by persistent pain in her surgically repaired left knee since being cleared to practice full speed, Doty took the advice of the UConn medical staff and on Tuesday had some hardware removed at the facility. Although the procedure will keep her from taking part in the Huskies’ first official practice on Saturday, Doty believes it should pave the way to what she hopes is an injury-free season.

 

UConn’s Geno Auriemma to receive Legends of Coaching Award - The Washington Post
Auriemma, who will coach the U.S. women’s team at next year’s London Olympics, is the second women’s coach to receive the honor. Tennessee’s Pat Summitt did so in 2008. UConn men’s coach Jim Calhoun was honored in 2005.

The Associated Press: UConn's Mosqueda-Lewis dealing with expectations
But coach Geno Auriemma hopes no one expects last year's national high school player of the year to replace Moore, who led the Huskies to two national championships, four Final Fours and was twice named the AP's national player of the year.

Jeff Hathaway: Big East To Hire Former UConn AD Jeff Hathaway - Courant.com
However UConn, without a doubt, will want to talk to him when he is hired because Hathaway left the school through a separation agreement that amounted to a $700,000 buyout, including the cost of continuing a health and dental plan for 18 months. But as part of that buyout, whatever salary he collects from his new employer will be subtracted from the buyout total.

UConn Football: Jones, Davis Haven't Done Enough At WR - Courant.com
The defection of three receivers before the season made Davis and Jones more important, but the passing game has struggled and so have they. Starting receivers Kashif Moore and Isiah Moore need backup. Nick Williams has stepped up recently, but the Huskies count on Davis and Jones for depth.

USF notes: Bulls wary of UConn defense | TBO.com
"UConn's defense is very stout, very impressive when it comes down to the run," Bulls senior OL Jeremiah Warren said. "That's going to be a tough test, but we look forward to it and I can't wait to get on the field."
