Some observations at the break:
***The Huskies – Kemba Walker and Jerome Dyson in particular – are playing hard. Very physical game, lots of wild sequences, very entertaining.
***For the first time this season, Alex Oriakhi didn't start. Charles Okwandu was in the starting lineup instead. Okwandu and Ater Majok have three fouls each, and Gavin Edwards two.
***Scottie Reynolds is the Big East player of the year. Gotta be.
***Stanley Robinson has six points – and six turnovers.
***Bruce Springsteen and Billy Joel have banners hanging from the Wachovia Center rafters -- The Boss for 51 sellouts in the building, Joel for 48.
