We’re a few minutes before tipoff at the Carrier Dome. Many of the 32,000 fans expected to be in the house are already here.

A few numbers to chew on:
UConn is 10-for-60 from 3 in its last four games.
Jeremy Lamb is shooting 10-for-37 in his last three.
Shabazz Napier is 4-for-33 over his last four.
