MILWAUKEE – Happy New Year from the frigid, but beautiful Great Lakes Region. UConn and Marquette get underway in about an hour here at the Bradley Center. A few pregame tidbits.
The Huskies will go with same starters they used against Washington: Shabazz Napier, Ryan Boatright, good to go and Enosch Wolf, though he was the most effective of UConn’s front court guys on Saturday, will again come off the bench.
Looks like everyone is out there for the Huskies, who are shooting right now. They had their more formal shoot-around here at 11 a.m. this morning.
As Buzz Williams serves out his school-imposed suspension, assistant Brad Autry will be in charge for Marquette on the bench.
UConn is 16-17 in its 33 Big East Conference openers. The Huskies will try to even that stat tonight.
