on
Two months have passed, but the ConnCast is back. On this episode, Chris Brodeur and I discuss the end of UConn’s 2012-13 season. There were some players who surpassed expectation, and others who didn’t. We hit on a little bit of everything, including (of course) the NBA Draft talk. To be clear, my stance there […] [Read More]

Podcast with Aaron Torres Sports

I caught up with Aaron Torres, who runs a popular college sports site, for a Huskies podcast earlier this week. Aaron and I discuss everything from Kevin Ollie to conference realignment’s effect on recruiting to DeAndre Daniels, a gifted player who has been rather inconsistent thus far. You can access the podcast here. And you […] [Read More]

The ConnCast: Calhoun, Ollie’s extension and…Homeland!

on
In this week’s ConnCast, Chris Brodeur and I discuss Jim Calhoun’s post-retirement life and Kevin Ollie’s contract extension (in between my coughing and sneezing). Calhoun touched on a number of topics — hisĀ  aspirations for the future and the crumbling of the Big East among them — during an interview with Hearst Connecticut last week. […] [Read More]

The ConnCast: Napier vs. Price, Kemba vs. Ben Gordon and more

on
Sparked by last week’s question regarding the professional careers of Shabazz Napier and A.J. Price, we examine similar scenarios in this week’s ConnCast. The News-Times’ Chris Brodeur and I debate the following topics: Better pro career — Napier or Price? Hasheem Thabeet or Alex Oriakhi? Kemba Walker or Ben Gordon? Andre Drummond or Emeka Okafor?

The ConnCast: Realignment, UConn hoops, Ollie-isms

on
November came and went with no ConnCast, but we wade sure December wouldn’t pass by, too. After a month off, co-host Chris Brodeur and I had plenty of ground to cover. We talk conference realignment, UConn’s biggest surprises through seven games and our favorite “Ollie-isms.” If you’re listening on your computer, you can play the […] [Read More]

The ConnCast: Calhoun’s retirement, Ollie’s future

on
Before we get into this week’s ConnCast, a few items of note: *UConn’s top 2013 commit, Kentan Facey, told Hearst Connecticut that he will “honor the commitment with coach Ollie as head coach.” His AAU teammate, Terrence Samuel, said that Calhoun’s retirement does not affect his commitment to UConn. *Hartford swingman Kuran Iverson has narrowed […] [Read More]

The ConnCast: Penn State and Summer Hoops

on
Well, we completely forgot to address The Dark Knight Rises. And that was supposed to the lead topic. Shucks. Instead, Chris Brodeur and I discuss the Penn State penalties and a variety of summer basketball topics: UConn recruiting, the NBA Summer League and the Hartford Pro-Am, where WestConn’s DaQuan Brooks dropped 50 in a game […] [Read More]

The ConnCast: New homes for ex-Huskies

on
The ConnCast was on a one-week hiatus. Clearly, we got a little rusty. I was on vacation last week (if you must know, I did accomplish my goals of watching Breaking Bad and getting tan) and in the meantime, Ray Allen went to the Heat and Hasheem Thabeet signed with the Thunder. In between the […] [Read More]

The ConnCast: NBA Draft Preview

on
The NBA Draft is two days away, which means we don’t have to force awkward conversation about nothing in this episode of The ConnCast (but we end up doing that anyway). News-Times sports reporter Chris Brodeur and I examine the sliding draft stock of Andre Drummond and Jeremy Lamb. One topic takes us from Dion […] [Read More]
