Huskies Storm Back

By David Scott - January 20, 2007

HARTFORD - A re-energized Husky team got settled down in the second half of the first 20 minutes in stanza one, and cut the Hoosier lead down to two with 3:34 left, 29-27. The comeback came with Thabeet on the bench, but Curtis Kelly asserting himself inside on the offensive glass and the Huskies buckling down on the defensive end.

. . . The Huskies now hold an impressive 18-9 edge in rebounding, led by Adrien and Johnson, who have four each.

. . .The Huskies brought it to 28-20 with 7:30 left in the half and then allowed the fans to get back into it, which in turn led to a Curtis Kelly put-back that cut the lead to six and then to four on the next UConn Possession, 28-24.

Sampson called another timeout to stop the flow with 5:39 left.

. . .The Jeff Adrien/DJ White match-up has been as advertised on both ends of the floor. The pair has similar body types with Adrien going 6-7, 238 and White at 6-9, 251. White has an 11-2 scoring lead with Adrien holding a 4-2 rebounding edge.

. . . Marcus Johnson had a monster two handed stuff of a shot with 4:15 left in the half.
