The Open Thread: UConn vs. Boston University

David Butler II-US PRESSWIRE

UConn looks to move to 4-0 on the season by beating New England rival Boston University

We got an early one today as the UConn men's basketball team takes on Boston University in the next leg of the 2K Sports Classic. UConn is looking to move to 4-0 on the season, while Boston University is looking to capitalize on their best start in more than 10 years.

Boston University is 2-0 and just blew out UMass Lowell 91-65. Senior forward Dom Morris recorded 27 points and 10 rebounds the other day against UMass Lowell, while Maurice Watson had 18 points, 8 rebounds and 7 assists. Boston University hasn't beaten a ranked team since 1959, so the No. 19 ranked Huskies theoretically shouldn't have any trouble with the Terriers, but that's why they play the games.

This is your open thread, enjoy the game fellow Huskies!

Projected Starting Lineup:

F - Dom Morris (Senior, 6-foot-7, 19.5 PPG)

F - Nathan Dieudonne (Sophomore, 6-foot-7, 8.0 PPG)

G - Maurice Watson Jr. (Sophomore, 5-foot-10, 17.0 PPG)

G - John Papale (Sophomore, 6-foot-3, 8.5 PPG)

G - D.J. Irving (Senior, 6-foot-0, 6.5 PPG)
