Taken by the Maine Red Claws with the third pick of the third round (34th overall). The Red Claws are coached by ex-UConn assistant Dave Leitao.

Good for Chuck -- he was an unheralded player that really came into his role in the postseason. He definitely gave us some good minutes when it counted, even in the national championship game. It was pretty much impossible to root against this guy after seeing this video:

Good luck Chuck!

Great news. I thought the kid made great progress in the three years he was in the program and the two years he played. If he had a redshirt his first (sophomore) year he might have showed something this season. Of course that was before AD.

Great news for Chuck. He got a lot of crap from UConn fans, but he was probably one of our most improved players from beginning of the season to the end. Very happy for him!
