TheOpenThread: UConn Huskies vs. Tennessee Volunteers

Loading Scores

Looking at my calendar, I see we're now past January 20th, so if this team is going to go on one of Jim Calhoun's patented "everything starts to click and UConn rips off 12 straight wins to end the season" runs they are more than welcome to do so at any time.

Unfortunately for the Huskies, if they're going to go on that run it's going to be without Ryan Boatright, who wasn't allowed to travel with the team today because the NCAA is dumb. Enosch Wolf is back in Connecticut too (waiting on the grade from one of his finals), not that he was expected to contribute a lot.

Niels Giffey will be starting based on the strength of his last outing, which was the first time in two months that someone on UConn's roster realized you're allowed to score from the small forward position.

What will UConn be doing today? Well, trying to get Jeremy Lamb back on track would be a nice start. The absence of Boatright really hurts him, and it's shown in his inconsistent play. Speaking of inconsistent, Alex Oriakhi and Andre Drummond both had off nights against Yancy Gates and Cincinnati, so hopefully they can right the ship this afternoon.
