STORRS – UConn vs. Vermont is about 40 minutes away. A few notes.
UConn’s starting lineup remains the same: Shabazz Napier, Ryan Boatright, Omar Calhoun, DeAndre Daniels, Tyler Olander.
Calhoun, after scoring 44 points in two exhibition games, was held without a field goal against Michigan State. Curious to see how he responds tonight.
Boatright, who turned his left ankle in Germany, seems to be moving around without a problem in the drills.
Not whole lot of people in the stands now, but it should be close to a full house. UConn was down to about 100 tickets left in the late afternoon.
UConn has never lost an opener at Gampel, a perfect 23-0. The Huskies are 70-4 in nonleague competition at Gampel, including 38 wins in a row. Vermont and UConn have been playing basketball since 1925. UConn leads the series 46-8. Vermont’s last victory was in February 1977 at Vermont.
Jordan Bell, a Long Beach, Calif., recruit often connected to UConn, announced Tuesday he is going to Oregon. No surprise. A possible Bell visit to UConn two weeks ago was scratched. Tough week for UConn on that front, with big man Noah Vonleh committing to Indiana over the weekend. … They are still hopeful on Philly guard Brandon Austin, who is down to UConn and Providence.
