A few pregame notes from Gampel, with start time 20 minutes away …
UConn’s starting lineup vs. AIC: Ryan Boatright, Shabazz Napier, Niels Giffey, Tyler Olander, DeAndre Daniels.
On the injury front, Ryan Boatright was out in the layup drill with his teammates, so his left ankle, which he turned Wednesday in practice, appears Okay. Coaches say he’s good to go. Enosch Wolf was also out there. He’s not expected to play tonight, but if there are no set-backs with his concussion, he’s expected to play Sunday vs. UMass-Lowell.
Jim Calhoun won’t be here. Ed Daigneault of the Waterbury Republican tweeted that he saw the former coach leave Gampel as he walked in.
Jim Calhoun is here at Gampel. Sitting on the baseline.
For tonight, walk-on Dave Vandal will wear No. 3, not 23. To follow the game via live stream, click here. for UConn’s website.
