Rodney Purvis, Kevin Ollie on UConn's road win

Just a couple of videos from Wednesday night's 60-49 win over East Carolina as we try to beat the ice storm back to the hotel.

UConn was sluggish in the first half, particularly on defense. But after getting a short but stern verbal lashing from Kevin Ollie at halftime, then getting Amida Brimah back on the floor after missing 14 1/2 minutes of the first half with foul trouble, the Huskies dominated the final 20 minutes.

Rodney Purvis on the ECU crowd getting on him:

And here's Kevin Ollie (sorta) explaining his rather colorful halftime speech:

Incidentally, UConn bused all the way back up to Raleigh in Wednesday night's ice storm after the game. Normally a 1 1/2-hour trip, it took them about 3 1/2 hours. They boarded their charter, but ultimately thought better of it and wound up checking into a hotel at about 2:45 a.m.

The Huskies took off from Raleigh at about 10:30 a.m. on Thursday and landed at Bradley around noon.

Excellent site. If only all bloggers offered the same level of content as you, the internet would be a much better place. I like your style of writing…
