Reminder: Book signing on Sunday! (Oh, and a UConn game, too)

Hey folks. First off, just wanted to remind you all that I'll be signing copies of my new book, Rebound! The Incredible Story of UConn Basketball's Comeback from Defeat to Dominance, on Sunday.

We'll be at the UConn Co-Op Bookstore at Storrs Center (One Royce Circle, 101 Storrs Center) from 1:45-2:15 p.m., then at the UConn Co-Op on Hillside Road (right next door to Gampel Pavilion) from 2:30-3:30 p.m.

Hope to see you there!

Oh yeah, and then UConn hosts Tulane at Gampel at 4 p.m. Kevin Ollie spoke with reporters in a conference call this afternoon, and here's some of what he had to say:

(on Tulane)

"They present a lot of things. They beat us with backdoor cuts, lately they've been doing great job of offensive rebounding. We’ve got to get back in transition, (Jay) Hook has been playing real well the last couple of games. We've got to keep (Louis) Dabney cold. He hasn’t been shooting well last couple of games."

(on the answer to why UConn has been so inconsistent this season)

"I wish I had it, I’d have been able to figure it out. Not being disciplined for 40 minutes, some bad turnovers at times. We can’t do that. We just don’t have the margin with the personnel we have to zone out, not be in on every small detail, giving up transition points."

(on Ryan Boatright, who got hit in the mouth by a still-unknown source Thursday night that caused a loose tooth and a trip to the dentist on Friday)

"I think he's gonna be alright. Hopefully, nobody knocks him in the mouth. And if they do, I hope our guys protect him. He went to the dentist, there was no structural damage. He participated in practice (Saturday). I think he'll be at full-strength."

(areas team needs to improve on)

"I want to get better with our discipline, the small things – getting back in transition, not having defensive breakdowns, executing on the offensive and defensive ends, hitting first, from the first five minutes to last moment of the last game against Temple, that's what I want to see. It hasn’t changed throughout whole season."

If anticoach was part of America's greatest generation & was a scout for a U.S. Army howitzer battalion on D-Day he would see a lightning rod and be so impressed he would award him a field commission and today the commentary at the book signing would have Giffey speaking das ist nicht so gut, sehr gut, guten tag, guten morgan, eins, zwei, drei . . aufwiedersehn
