TheRoundUp 1/12: Critics take aim at Calhoun's sideline behavior

Calhoun Issues Statement On Punch - Hartford Courant
Daniels, who had trouble getting the ball inbounds, called a timeout. As he walked to the bench, Calhoun, obviously incensed, got very close to him and, as SNY cameras suggest, there was contact made, though the view is blocked by players. Calhoun grabbed Daniels' shirt after the jab. Photos taken just afterward show Calhoun's fist closed.

Jeff Jacobs on Jim Calhoun and the DeAndre Daniels incident -
Two things matter most here: It looks like a jab by Calhoun — certainly not some roundhouse right — and there is no exaggerated reaction of shock or pain by Daniels. This wasn't Bob Knight grabbing Neil Reed by the throat at an Indiana practice. This wasn't Woody Hayes punching Clemson's Charlie Bauman on the sideline at the 1978 Gator Bowl. Not even close. And that's important. Yet every coach from peewees to professional — especially the long-tenured college gods — should get this straight: When you're pissed off, keep your fists open and keep your hands off the players. And that's just as important.

The Day - Calhoun criticized for sideline behavior | News from southeastern Connecticut
Heading into a timeout early in the second half, Calhoun stomped toward Boatright and then blasted the freshman guard while standing face-to-face. Boatright took the heat without saying a word. It was an uncomfortable, cringe-worthy moment. A few readers took exception to Calhoun's behavior.

Anthony Davis, Jeremy Lamb impress in 2012 NBA draft stock watch - Ben Glicksman -
"He scores 1,000 different ways," a talent evaluator said. "He can make runners and floaters and pull-ups and threes and can score in traffic." Lamb boasts a 51.3 field-goal percentage (39.6 percent from three-point range), but has struggled to get to the free-throw line, averaging 3.1 attempts per game. If he can increase that number and add some muscle to his lanky frame, look for him to secure a spot among the 2012 draft elite.

SNY making push to broadcast all UConn women games- The Register Citizen
SNY, which has a working agreement to televise selective UConn football and men’s basketball games, has enough financial clout to make the people at CPTV concerned. The Day reported that CPTV made its presentation to UConn last week and that Fox 61 is also involved.

UConn Women's Basketball: A Protective Auriemma Stresses Patience. -
"I said to somebody, we go into a press conference after we lose and it's like people are expecting you to describe how you feel about the Kennedy assassination," Auriemma said earlier this week. "It's like so mind-boggling and so unacceptable. It's so bizarre you almost have to sit there and go, `Guys, let's get a grip.'"

State College Notebook: Cole Schneider wasn't recruited by Niagara for hockey, and the UConn wing has two hat tricks against the Purple Eagles. - Hartford Courant
Since arriving at UConn, he has lit up the Purple Eagles. Schneider had three goals and an assist as a freshman in an 8-5 victory at Niagara on Dec. 4, 2010. He had three goals Friday night in a 4-2 victory in Storrs, and another assist Saturday as UConn completed a sweep of Niagara. Those victories moved UConn (9-10-2 overall, 7-6-1 in Atlantic Hockey) from eighth place to a three-way tie for fifth in the conference.
