A Sterling performance in a nearly embarrassing collapse by UConn

Sterling Gibbs came up big on Saturday night, as UConn squandered a 19-point second-half lead but wound up pulling off a 75-67 win at Tulane.

Here's some of what Kevin Ollie had to say afterwards, as well.

Here's my column off the game, highlighting Gibbs' big night, and here are some game notes.

Also, it was nice to see DeAndre Daniels on Saturday night. He's in town visiting his grandmother and stepmom for the holidays, and was inside the locker room afterwards. Daniels played in Australia last year but broke his foot about four months ago and has been rehabbing mostly in Toronto with the Raptors, who still hold his rights after selecting him in the second round of the 2014 NBA draft.

He said he probably needs about another month or two of rehabbing before he’s ready to play again. He’s not under contract with the Raptors, who will relinquish his rights after this season.

Daniels enjoyed his time in Australia last year.

“It was good,” he said. “I loved it. To be far away and be out there by myself was tough at first, but it was good to grow up and play a new position (small forward). It was a good league, and I enjoyed my time out there.”
