Huskies in Control

By David Scott - December 20, 2006

HARTFORD - UConn has bucked down on the defensive end with some high-intensity effort from Marcus Johnson and Stanley Robinson. They now lead 82-62with under three minutes left in the game.

. . . Hasheem Thabeet's first field goal of the seocnd half didn't come until 8:11 left. he then converted a free throw for the thrre-point play and a 67-53 lead, UConn's biggest of the game.

. . .Doug Wiggins, who had five points in the first half, now stands with 16 - two shy of a career-high for the freshman from East Hartford.

. . . Tonight's crowd is the rarest of all college hoops crowd: everyone is either over 60 or under 10.

. . . A nasty rejection (out of bounds) by Stanley Robinson with 8:43 left brought the crowd back into a bit.

. . . Gotta give a little love to the Pepperdine radio broadcast team of Al Epstein and well, Al Epstein. One of the old-school solo radio announcers, Epstein is in his 21st seaosn as "The Voice of the Waves." He orginally started as the team's color analyst. Epstein is also an author of the book, "Play-By-Play Sportscast Training."

. . . It appears that the Waves are truly a family affair with Walberg's daughters, Heather and Jamie-Rose serving as Graduate Office Assistant and Team Manager, repsetcively.

. . . Walberg himself has been all over the officials all night, at one point screaming "Every call goes their way." Welcome to Hartford, Coach.
