Here’s a look at UConn’s 2013-14 roster following the addition of George Washington transfer Lasan Kromah, a fifth-year senior with immediate eligibility. Kromah figures to absorb R.J. Evans’ minutes from a year ago.
A 6-foot-5 guard noted as a solid perimeter defender, Kromah played for UConn assistant Karl Hobbs as a freshman. Hobbs was the head coach at George Washington from 2001-11.
PG — Shabazz Napier, senior: Had one of the best individual seasons of any point guard in program history.
SG — Ryan Boatright, junior: Dynamic athlete and scorer. Struggled as point guard in Napier’s absence.
SG — Omar Calhoun, sophomore: Showed solid progress throughout freshman season.
F — DeAndre Daniels, junior: Long, physically-gifted wing who put it all together in final five games.
F — Tyler Olander, senior: Had a disappointing season as the starter (4.3 points, 3.7 rebounds).
G/F — Niels Giffey, senior: Glue guy who struggled with jumpshot during junior campaign.
F — Kentan Facey, freshman: The highest-rated of UConn’s three newcomers. A lanky 6-foot-9 athlete who will be counted on to rebound and block shots.
F — Phil Nolan, sophomore: Averaged 6.3 rebounds in final three games.
G — Lasan Kromah, grad student: Long, active defender whose scoring numbers have dipped each year.
G —Terrence Samuel, freshman: Physical point guard in the Kevin Ollie mold.
F — Amida Brimah, freshman: Ridiculous wingspan (reportedly 7-foot-5), but underdeveloped offensive skills.
F — Leon Tolksdorf, sophomore: Spot-up shooter who played sparingly a year ago.
G—Brendan Allen, junior: Scholarship player last season reverts to walk-on status.
*G—Rodney Purvis, sophomore: Will sit out 2013-14 season as a transfer. Can practice with team.
*C—Enosch Wolf, senior: Suspended indefinitely since Feb. 11, Wolf has been permitted to return as a walk-on. It’s unclear if he’ll opt to do so.
