Huskies Put Forth Extreme Effort

By David Scott - February 05, 2007

STORRS, Conn. - Perhaps sensing that their post-season hopes - Big East and otherwise - hang in the balance, UConn has played inspried ball in the latter part of the seocnd half and with 3:42 left int he game, leads 62-57.

UConn took it five point lead on a steal and break away dunk by Marcus Johnson with about five minutes to play - and Gampel got to its loudest point of the evening.

. . . Terrence Roberts fouled out with 6:07 left for Syracuse. He scored just two points. Darryl Watkins, playing with four fouls, was sent in to replace Roberts. He then fouled out with 3:42 left in the game, on a foul on Hasheem Thabeet.

. . . The Gampel crowd gave Roberts the "Left, Right, Left, Right" chant as he returned ot the bench from his fifth foul. It's ended with a "Sit Down," but Roberts head-faked and didn't sit just as the fans instructed him to. Nice touch by Roberts.

. . . As always, we will plan on filing a post-game columnette after the press conferences and interview periods have ended.

. . . Please be sure to check back in with Hang Time on Thursday night for a battle of Atlantic 10 leaders, as Rhode Island travels to Amherst to face UMass at the Mullins Center.
