Rebels Show No Fear

By David Scott - November 19, 2006

HARTFORD - The Civic Center, which is undergoing all sorts of improvements, is filling in with just the high end zone seats remaining empty.

Ole Miss’s coaching staff was a bit concerned that the Rebels would be intimidated early by the big, bad Huskies, but Andy Kennedy’s squad managed to maintain a 7-6 lead at the first TV timeout.

. . .UConn’s Hasheem Thabeet is an impressive man-child, and that was before he registered his first block with 25 seconds gone in the game.

. . .Ole Miss’s Todd Abernethy goes with Teen Wolf hairdo (long locks), complete with the blue Nike headband.

. . . It’s a Nike School vs. a Nike School in the battle of the sneakers.

. . . The Hartford Whalers banners still adorn the rafters, along with Hartford Wolfpack and UConn banners. The Whale, for those who don’t know, are the Carolina Hurricanes - little hockey trivia for you in the Hang Time hallways.
