Daniels Overcame Katrina, Now Fighting for Playing Time
As we await word on Ryan Boatright's eligibility moving forward, here's a feature on DeAndre Daniels, who has had quite a path on his way to UConn.
Daniels was forced to evacuate his home near New Orleans and move back to southern California after Hurricane Katrina hit in August, 2005. He still has lots of friends and family in the area who were severely affected by the storm.
Returning to New Orleans for this year's Final Four would be quite a homecoming for Daniels. (Yes, I know, ridiculously premature and, based on UConn's recent play, unrealistic). Still, it's always interesting to see what some of these kids go through before they become D-1 ballplayers.
