*** UConn hoisted up 32 3-pointers tonight, the most they've tried from distance since tossing up 35 in the famous six-overtime loss to Syracuse in the 2009 Big East tourney. The Huskies hit 10 tonight (and only seven against the Orange).
*** Jim Calhoun (sort of) explained his confrontation with Charles Okwandu, detailed in previous blog entries: "He kept saying the guy grabbed his arm, that's why he couldn't get the ball … He was saying that he could never get there. Those arguments – if you call it an argument, I guess … Charles just said he got fouled. I took exception to that. It was me taking exception to the fact that he (should have) dunked him and the basketball in the hoop. It would take care of a lot of things. I don't know why we're not powering the ball … If I was upset with him, he wouldn't have played in the second half. I'm not upset with Charles. Charles has a lot more that he's not giving to us. He doesn't truly understand, because he's a kid without a great deal of confidence. I haven't had many concentration with players. Usually it's one-way."
*** Andre Drummond was behind the UConn bench -- again. It looked like he was wearing a UConn jacket, but I couldn't tell for sure.
