We're told Niels Giffey and Charles Okwandu will be in the starting lineup tonight for UConn. Okwandu isn't really a surprise, but Giffey is, to a degree. He's barely sniffed the floor recently, although Giffey did play seven minutes against Syracuse on Wednesday and made a couple of nice contributions.
The coaching staff seems to like Giffey's defense, though I wouldn't bank on him guarding Jeremy Hazell tonight. That honor looks like it will fall on Jeremy Lamb, at least to start the game.
