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.

Huskies on the Move: Tracking UConn alumni in the NBA

The biggest sports story in the nation, at least on Friday night, belonged to former Boston Celtic Ray Allen.

Not everything you read on the internet is true. But most of it is, and based off reports surfacing in the hours before the draft, Andre Drummond and Jeremy Lamb seem to be falling. I’ve seen Drummond anywhere from 5-9 and Lamb from 8-mid teens. My guess — and it’s exactly that, a guess — […] [Read More]
