At 6’7″, UConn men’s basketball sophomore Daniel Hamilton has an advantage over shorter players who have to guard him. And when head coach Kevin Ollie has him bring the ball up, he uses that height as well as his passing ability to set up his teammates.
Through two games, Hamilton leads the team with 15 assists. After last night’s 85-66 win, New Hampshire head coach Bill Herrion compared to the great Magic Johnson.
Watch and/or listen below as Herrion, Ollie as well as Hamilton and Rodney Purvis talk about Hamilton’s passing abilities.
At 5-5, the UConn Huskies football team has a chance to do something it hasn’t done since the 2010 season. And that’s become bowl eligible.
As UConn football coach Bob Diaco continues to build his program, getting bowl eligible can help the programs in many different ways.
With the last regular season game on November 28 at Temple, Diaco would be able to hold practices up until bowl bids are announced if the Huskies were bowl eligible. And if they made a bowl game, he would get another 15 practices as part of preparing for the game.
Extra practices like these would huge for a young team. And that’s not even mentioning recruiting.
Most importantly, it would be a great way to send the senior class off to the real world.
Watch and/or listen below as Diaco, Tommy Hopkins and Max DeLorenzo talk about what it means to become bowl eligible.
Annie Wickett wasn’t even on the 22-man travel squad for the UConn Huskies women’s soccer team in 2014. In fact, she only saw action in one game last year.
But according to UConn women’s soccer head coach Len Tsantiris, Wickett worked very hard in the offseason and earned the starting job at left back.
During the season, Wickett had a few opportunities to score but could never get one past the opposing goalkeeper. That changed on in Sunday’s 5-0 win over the Siena Saints in the first round of the NCAA Women’s Soccer Tournament when she scored on a shot from about 20 yards out.
After the game, Wickett along with her teammate Rachel Hill and Tsantiris talked about her first career goal.
Two of the above five are starters (Brimah, Purvis) on the 2015-16 UConn Huskies men’s basketball team. The other three, Calhoun, Facey and Nolan, will come off the bench this season.
During the UConn men’s basketball season opening win over Maine, their depth was apparent especially to Maine’s head coach Bob Walsh. He was impressed at the quality of the depth with veterans guys who have bought into the role.
Watch and/or listen below as Walsh along with UConn men’s basketball coach Kevin Ollie talk about UConn’s bench experience and depth.
