Price to Start

By David Scott - January 10, 2007

STORRS, Conn. - If the stats monitor can be trusted, it appears AJ Price will make his 15th start of the season. There had been some speculation that Price, who has struggled as of late, would be used off the bench with Craig Austrie getting the start.

The starters, as indicated on our handy-dandy stat screen are: Marcus Johnson, Jeff Adrien, Jerome Dyson, Price and Hasheem Thabeet for UConn. Marquette will go with Dominic James, Jerel McNeal, Wesley Matthews, Lazar Hayward and Ousmane Barro.

It is the second straight game that Crean will use that line-up to get things going for the Golden Eagles.

. . . It’s got to be a game of some significance as longtime AP hoops writer, Jim O’Connell is in the house tonight.

. . . We ran into Vinny Del Negro as we waited for use of the media bathroom. Del Negro, if memory serves, is scouting for the Phoenix Suns these days.

. . . Our UConn Media Relations connection, Leigh Torbin, informs us that we’re going to enjoy the halftime show, but wouldn’t let on anymore than that. Mysterious man, that Torbin.
