Saturday, the 10th-ranked UConn Huskies will welcome in the Eastern Washington Eagles to see if they can push their record to 11-1 in their last out-of-conference contest before they begin play in the American Athletic Conference on New Year’s Eve.
That hire of Kevin Ollie to replace the legendary Jim Calhoun looks better and better as each game goes on. You can tell he has this team focused at all times. In their recent win over Washington, they got off to a rather slow start, but as Ryan Boatright pointed out, but they were able to pull it together and get the job done, which is always a sign of good coaching:
“We were like, ‘Man, if we don’t step it up right now we’re fixing to lose this game,’” saidRyan Boatright, who had 16 points after scoring a season-low seven against Stanford. “And everybody dug down deep and we crawled back in it.”
Here’s how you can watch the UConn Huskies try to push their record to 11-1 on Saturday:
