on't forget about UConn

Early buzz is on UNC and Kentucky, but the Huskies might be just as good

By John Gasaway

Most of the country is talking about North Carolina and Kentucky this November, and rightfully so. Both teams have looked great in the early going, and the meeting between the Tar Heels and the Wildcats in Lexington on Dec. 3 should be exciting for NBA scouts and college basketball fans.
Then again, another top-five team looks pretty good right now, and it happens to be the defending national champion 4-0 Connecticut Huskies. The Huskies' schedule to this point has been soft(Columbia, Wagner, Maine and Coppin State), but there's much to learn even when a team is cruising through the easiest portion of its season. After all, the Huskies have played 268 possessions of basketball without their unquestioned leader and featured scorer from last season, Kemba Walker. How's that working for them? Who has stepped up, and has the absence of their star led to any interesting adjustments from coach Jim Calhoun?

Even before Thanksgiving, here are some early observations:

Basically says don't overlook uconn and highlights the play of lamb (good, will bet more efficient when he makes mOre threes), Napier (sensational), oriakhi (overlooked) and Drummond ( needs to foul less, maybe start him?)

Please don't copy whole articles into a post here. I don't want to get Tom sued again! General rule of thumb is that you can cut and paste about 10% of an article and then provide the link.

But another web site put a pdf of the article up so here's a link to that.

Oriakhi needs to start fouling more and Drummond needs to start fouling less.
hahaha thats awesome. Oriakhi probably does need more fouls to at least show some hes being active, which everyone knows is his biggest issue.
