Greetings from Fifth Third Arena in Cincinnati. It’s snowing outside so the Huskies should feel right at home.
OK, on to the news.
Shabazz Napier won’t play for the Huskies. He’s out of uniform and wearing a protective boot on the UConn bench.
R.J. Evans has replaced him in the starting lineup.
— IN CASE YOU missed it, here’s today’s story from the JI in advance of the game.
— MEDIA TYPES such as myself may be hustled out of here pretty quickly after the game. The Cincinnati women (coached by one of Kevin Ollie’s classmates, Jamelle Elliott) are taking on Rutgers at 5 p.m., about an hour after the opener here.
