UConn Visiting Newtown This Afternoon

The UConn men's basketball team visited Newtown today to visit with kids, hang out, play some ball, etc. Kevin Ollie had said last week he wanted the Huskies to be able to "do something for the kids" in the town stricken by unbearable tragedy, and he's following through today.

There is no media access for the Huskies' visit -- at the request of Newtown officials -- and we're more than happy to respect those wishes. I'm sure Ollie and the players will have plenty to say about it at Friday's media availability around noon, following the team's morning practice.

Also, today happens to be Ollie's 40th birthday. UConn can give him a belated gift Saturday night, when it faces a decent (8-4) University of Washington team. We'll have more on this Husky-Husky battle tomorrow.

Elsewhere, there's this: every Big East team this season is at least four games over .500. Seven clubs have at least 10 wins, and overall, conference teams have compiled a 142-31 (.821) record against non-conference foes.

Better break that up.
