Wednesday Recap: Lineup Changes Spark Nothing As UConn Falls

February 2nd, 2012
UConn's in desperate need of answers

Connecticut head coach Jim Calhoun knew heading into Wednesday's game that his struggling team, losers of three straight, needed some kind of spark to get things going. That meant shuffling the lineup, with Shabazz Napier and Alex Oriakhi being replaced as starters by Ryan Boatright and Roscoe Smith, and for a short time on Wednesday night the move paid off. UConn got out to a 13-7 lead at the first media timeout and generally played better basketball on the offensive end, which was likely the desired effect of the move.

2010-11 Penn Quakers Welcome New Recruits

August 22nd, 2010
Quakers look to get back to the top of the Ivy

The 2009-10 season was a tough one for the Penn Quakers and their fans, as the 25-time Ivy League champions lost their first ten games (and 14 of their first 15) on the way to a disappointing record of 6-22 (5-9 Ivy). But a season with few highlights included Zack Rosen, Jack Eggleston and company handing eventual league champion (and Sweet 16 member) Cornell their first conference loss of the season, and with Jerome Allen beginning his first full season as head coach hope springs eternal.
