The University of Connecticut has imposed sanctions on their men’s basketball program due to the NCAA allegations in October regarding Kevin Ollie.
As former Knick great Walt “Clyde” Frazier would say, Dangerfield was “dishin’ and swishin.” The junior point guard, who was coming off a subpar game against Tulane, was able to do a little bit of everything for the Huskies. Her signature play of the game came in the fourth quarter with UConn up 70-52, when she dribbled into the lane taking on a double-team before slicing the defense on a no-look pass to Megan Walker for the easy layup to put them up 20.
The University of Connecticut’s Department of Transportation is slated to change the Yellow bus line for the spring 2019 semester.
Despite a slow and sloppy first half, the Huskies got a much-needed win, riding a 31-point performance by Jalen Adams to get past Tulane 87-71.
Junior Christian Vital cemented his name in the record books, and senior Jalen Adams put on a clinic on the second half to lead his team to the win.
UConn beat New Hampshire 4-1 in its last game, after an offensive outburst in the third period. The Huskies were led by 39 saves from goaltender Morgan Fisher, two goals from forward Natalie Snodgrass, and a goal each from Morgan Wabick and Briana Colangelo. The three-goal third period earned them the win after going down 1-0 in the first period and Snodgrass tied it up in the second.
Though move-in for the residence hall was slated for Sunday, the early so students can avoid the upcoming storm.
“Listen, some things need to be done from the league office on this one,” Hurley said. “When I’m wrong, I’ll take it, I’ll take my technicals, I’ll take my ejection at the Garden, I was wrong then. But [tonight] was a complete overreaction, and then escalation.”
"I think since we got back from Christmas, Megan has had a different approach to the game," UConn coach Geno Auriemma said in an article posted to the team’s website. "Her effort is different. Her intensity level is different. Just her whole mannerisms are different. It's obviously showed up in the way she's played in games. These are the kind of games where you just need one person to step up because everyone else is struggling to make any kind of shot. Today, it was her."
“We’ve just got to get better as a team. We have to coach better. We have to play better and find a rhythm,” head coach Mike Cavanaugh said. “I don’t think we’ve found our rhythm yet as a club and with 12 games left, we’re going to have to figure out a way to do that pretty soon.”
UConn (7-14-1) fell behind early, surrendering a goal to Chase Zieky during the fifth minute of the game. Zieky is one of three transfers recently added to this RPI team, and made them a much different team than the one UConn saw earlier in the season. After trading penalties in the 13th and 14th minutes, UConn and RPI (7-15) failed to capitalize, and the first period ended 1-0.
“(Samuelson) came here with a reputation as a shooter and we were determined to try and make her into a well-rounded basketball player,” UConn head coach Geno Auriemma said Sunday. “So I’m not surprised that she has scored 2,000 points because she’s always had the ability to make shots. She is making them from a lot more different places now than she did early in her career.”
“I am looking forward to the opportunity to join Coach Edsall’s staff at UConn,” Spanos said in a release. “I can’t wait to get up to Storrs and meet the student-athletes on the team and hit the recruiting trail.”
This season, UConn is playing without much depth and it isn’t unheard of for its starters to play a full forty minutes in tight games. In Sunday’s game however, the bench was thrust into the spotlight when Auriemma made wholesale substitutions, taking the five starters out and putting the bench in to play just halfway into the first quarter.

The UConn women’s basketball team proved to have a short-term memory Sunday afternoon after taking care of business against Houston in the American Conference opener, defeating them 81-61. The Huskies were able to get back on track after their 126-game winning streak was snapped, against Baylor just three days prior.
