Finishing Touches Being Applied

By David Scott - November 19, 2006

HARTFORD - With under three minutes left in the game, UConn leads 73-55.

It has been a very thorough dismantling of the Rebels, who were making their first ever trip to the Constitution State. To the Rebels credit, they hung tough and didn’t allow things to get totally out of hand. Ole Miss will struggle, especially in the rough and tumble SEC, but Andy Kennedy was a solid hire for this program and recruiting has been going well according to assistant coach Michael White.

The Rebels earlier this week announced the signings of Zach Graham (Top 100 from Suwanee, Georgia); Chris Warren (Top 20 point guard from Orlando) and Kevin Cantinol (Clearwater, Fla.).

Ole Miss also got Florida-transfer David Huertas back in July.

. . .Once again, to remind you of our post-game plan, we’ll file a “columnette” after the post-game interviews have concluded and also plan on having scouting reports for both teams by late Monday, so be sure to check out the Searching for Cinderella page, where the Scouting Reports live in the lower right-hand corner of the page.

. . . UConn sophomore Jeff Adrien has had a double-double in all three of his games prior to tonight and at halftime had nine points and six rebounds. Adrien and Emeka Okafor are the only Jim Calhoun players to start a season with three straight double-doubles. Adrien had one DD all of last season.

. . . Ushers at the new and improved Hartford Civic Center are clad in purple blazers. Every time you turn around, you think Barney is in the aisle.
