The bad new for UConn basketball fans (and reporters) who wanted to see some of the new kids play tonight at the Greater Hartford Pro-Am is that … well, those players are hitting the books at study hall this evening.
We’ll wait around for the second game, in which Vin Baker is supposed to be playing for Simoniz All-Stars.
And here’s an interesting tidbit: also on the Simoniz All-Stars roster is Jimmer Fredette, the high-scoring guard from BYU. Fredette is out in Vegas with Kemba Walker and others, playing against the U.S. national team. But supposedly, he intends on showing up at some point this summer to play in the GHPA. Apparently, it’s the closest NCAA-sanctioned league for the Glens Falls, N.Y. native.
