STORRS – The Huskies finished up practiced and were asked the inevitable questions about being ranked 23rd in the AP poll – a week after receiving no votes at all.
“I didn’t know that until just now,” Ryan Boatright said. “We’re not going to hang out hats on that, we still feel we have a lot to prove. It’s all going to be washed away if we lose [to Vermont].”
Shabazz Napier: “Being a junior, that means nothing to me. When you’re a freshman, you come in and see a number next to your name and your excited. But as a junior, it means nothing.”
R.J. Evans. “Well, I’ve never been ranked before, so it’s realy exciting for me. But we don’t want to rest on that. We want to keep climbing in the rankings.”
Kevin Ollie: “I didn’t realize that until just now. We’re going to just keep playing Connecticut basketball. Running, defense, unselfishness – that’s Connecticut basketball.”
