Q: With all the scholarship sanctions in the past couple of years it is hard to keep track of how many scholarships UConn is allotted.  How many will they be able to use for next season?

A: Hi Kevin, thanks for the question. Assuming nothing new comes up, UConn will again have its full allotment of 13 scholarships for men’s basketball next season. All NCAA and APR-related sanctions will be behind them.

They have 11 players on scholarship right now, including grad-student R.J. Evans, whose eligibility will end with this season. Brendan Allen, a former walk-on, was put on scholarship this season, because there were two unused; one would assume his scholarship status will be evaluated year to year. Obviously, it is too early to know how Enosch Wolf’s situation will play out, or what Shabazz Napier and/or Ryan Boatright will decide regarding the NBA Draft.

So UConn will have scholarships available for incoming freshmen Terrence Samuel and Kentan Facey, who have signed their letters, and for Amida Brimah, who has made a verbal commitment. They could have others available, but want to make sure they are in position to make offers to Class of 2014 and 15 recruits.

    Do you think Brianne Stewart will be ready for March.
    We are going to need her to play much better.
