Video: UConn Men’s Basketball Depth Will Be Issue For Opposing Teams

Amida Brimah, Omar Calhoun, Kentan Facey, Phillip Nolan, Rodney Purvis (redshirt) all have been part of a national championship winning team during their time with the UConn men’s basketball team.

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.

The UConn men’s basketball team is back in action tonight when they’ll host the New Hampshire Wildcats at Gampel Pavilion. Tip is scheduled for 7 p.m. and will be broadcast locally on SNY. You can also listen on the UConn IMG Radio Network.
