UConn and Yale's Businessman's Special
So, here we are.
Elsewhere: UConn dropped from No. 18 to 19 in this week's AP Top 25 poll, despite its win over a good Maryland team on a neutral court. Don't blame me, I kept the Huskies where I had them in my preseason poll, at No. 13.
*** Shabazz Napier was named to the AAC's Weekly Honor Roll. Rutgers' Kadeem Jack was named Player of the Week after scoring 30 points on 12-for-18 shooting in a win over Florida A&M.
*** UConn commit Daniel Hamilton was at the Maryland game in Brooklyn, having made the cross-country flight from California. He's back in Cali now, we're told, but word is he was impressed by the Huskies' run-and-gun style of play Friday night.
*** UConn is 43-21 all-time vs. Yale, though the last time they played was in the 2003 Preseason NIT. Yale led the No. 1-ranked Huskies by three at halftime, but UConn rallied for a 70-60 win. The Huskies have won 12 straight over the Bulldogs, dating back to a 77-75 overtime loss in 1986.
