I'm hesitant to write this, given the nature of the league and its rather fluid roster situation, but UConn fans might want to head to the Greater Hartford Pro-Am tonight for a chance to see UConn's most highly-touted incoming freshman, Roscoe Smith, play. Maybe.

Smith is on the Doc Hurley All-Stars (along with Kemba Walker, Shabazz Napier, Alex Oriakhi and Tyler Olander) who play Sparks Motor All-Stars tonight at 6:30 p.m. at the Sports & Medicine Sciences Academy on Huyshope Avenue in Hartford.

I was told last week by a couple of players that they didn't think Smith would be playing in the GHPA this summer due to classes, and he didn't play with the team last week when I was there. But he apparently did make his league debut on Saturday night with the team, so perhaps he's only playing weekends.

Either way, tonight's a good chance to see several players who'll be integral parts of this year's Husky team. And if Smith is there, it's a chance to see perhaps their most impactful newcomer.
