Mr. Smith

It wasn't as impressive as Alex Oriakhi's monster jam last night, but here's Roscoe Smith on a breakaway dunk in Greater Hartford Pro-Am action on Wednesday:

In fact, Smith wasn't that impressive overall. He and Oriakhi arrived about midway through the first quarter of the Doc Hurley All-Atars game with Fairview Capital. Once he got in the game, it took a while for Smith to get on track. He missed nearly every field goal and free throw attempt he tried, made some embarassing turnovers and had just three points at the break. He regrouped a bit in the latter half, however, as things got a little more wide-open and showed some open-floor skills (including the above dunk). Also made a couple of tough jumpers.

And here's an interview I did afterwards with Roscoe, as he talks about his expectations for the upcoming season:

In other news, here's a story in today's Register catching up with Jeff Adrien, who had a harrowing first pro season in Spain and is determined to latch on with an NBA team this upcoming season.

And finally, here's a podcast with Dave Solomon and me, as we discuss baseball, Red Sox, Yankees and, of course, UConn hoops.
