Huskies move up in poll; Olander practices

After a couple of solid wins, including Saturday’s victory at Notre Dame, the UConn basketball team moved up in both major polls Monday.

The Huskies rose four spots to 13th in the Associated Press rankings. They’re 11th in the ESPN/USA Today coaches poll.

UConn returns to action Wednesday night in Storrs against Cincinnati.

— On a side note, UConn officials report PF Tyler Olander (heel) participated in about 85 percent of Monday’s practce. The injury limited Olander’s minutes against the Irish.

— Also, guard Brendan Allen suffered a cut over his eye Monday that required five stitches to close.

— Center Andre Drummond was named Big East rookie of the week Monday. It’s the fourth time this season the 6-foot-11 star has earned the honor.
