The 13th-ranked UConn Huskies will be at home Tuesday night in Storrs when they welcome in the Loyola (MD) Greyhounds for an early season out-of-conference battle.
Under Kevin Ollie, the Huskies are off to their best start in three years, a season which ended in a national title for UConn.
That may not happen this year, but this UConn team is playing some great basketball, having just won the 2K Sports Classic championship. This team is led by senior guard Shabazz Napier, who was the MVP of the tournament and is averaging 16.8 points.
After the win over Indiana last week, Hoosiers coach Tom Crean had some high praise for the senior:
“He is an incredible high-level guard,” Hoosiers coach Tom Crean said of the 6-foot-1 Napier. “That is a 12-, 13-year pro. I don’t care about size.”
Loyola also comes in undefeated at 4-0 on the season and overcame a 17-point deficit in their last game to win in overtime, so this team is no stranger to facing adversity.
Here’s how you can take in all the action as it unfolds live on Tuesday night:
