Watch Connecticut Huskies Basketball Games Online
Will all expectations be the same this season when you watch the Connecticut Huskies basketball online? The Huskies surprised the college basketball world with its improbable run, winning an unprecedented five games in five days to capture the Big East Tournament championship and then claiming the programís third national championship. But All-American Kemba Walker ó the heart, soul and pulse of the Huskies ó has moved on to the NBA, leaving a major void. Coach Jim Calhoun said he expects his team to make the NCAA Tournament and go as deep as they can. Plenty of talent remains, including rising star Jeremy Lamb and All-Big East candidate Alex Oriakhi, the teamís only upperclassman. Elite big man Andre Drummond, who made a surprise decision in late August by opting to attend UConn instead of prep school, is one of three impact freshmen.
The Huskiesí frontcourt situation vastly improved with the arrival of Drummond, an athletic 6'10", 275-pound center with enormous potential. Heíll serve as an anchor up front. Oriakhi, who averaged 9.6 points, 8.7 rebounds and 1.6 blocks as a sophomore, had monster games last season - but mediocre ones, too. More consistency is needed in his game. Even with the departure of Walker, the teamís leading scorer, there is still a pool of skilled perimeter players. Lamb, an All-Big East rookie team selection, had a sensational ending to a solid freshman season.
