Men’s Basketball: Three Huskies, last players from 2014 championship team, leave big shoes to fill

There isn’t a whole lot going for the UConn men’s basketball team anymore. Three players transferred, their top recruit de-committed and the team finished with a losing record for the first time in 30 years. And on top of that, the graduating seniors—Amida Brimah, Kentan Facey and Rodney Purvis—are the last remnants of the revered 2013-14 NCAA championship team.

While Purvis never played that season due to the transfer rule, the contributions that Brimah made were the difference between a national championship and a slow slip into mediocrity for UConn.
