The Four Freshmen

Well, three on Sunday night, anyway. It was a good night for incoming UConn freshmen at the Greater Hartford Pro-Am.

Darius Smith had 27 points and five assists and Ater Majok added 19 points, eight boards and 12 blocks to lead Springfield Slamm to a 135-109 win over Top Dog Entertainment.

Alex Oriakhi had 25 points and 14 boards for Top Dog.

I've been impressed with all three players so far (as well as Jamaal Trice). I think UConn fans are really going to love Smith right off the bat. The kid just seems to be a natural leader and winner. He just seems to have "it" -- whatever "it" may be.
