(WTNH)–This UConn men’s basketball season has been one of runs, ups and downs, and wild swings crazier than Bill Burr’s cartoon character on “F is for Family.”
The Huskies are like an NBA team, or at least, an NBA Jam team. Everybody made a run in NBA Jam.
Though it’s clear that this team is talented, not many Huskies have been able to come through with consistent performance from game to game, or even half to half.
Sterling Gibbs and Daniel Hamilton have flashes of legitimate brilliance, but they disappear at times, falling into listless-looking shooting slumps or making bad decisions with the basketball (more Hamilton than Gibbs on that one).
Gibbs went 1-for-8 in the loss to Temple on Tuesday night. He shot 3-for-12 against Texas and 4-for-13 against Tulane in the two outings previous. Hamilton was 2-for-13 in the Temple loss, and had four turnovers in the Huskies’ nailbiter against Tulane.
Outside of Rodney Purvis, who was the AAC’s Player of the Week last week, the only Husky who has been consistent, game after game, has been senior forward Shonn Miller. The Cornell transfer has scored in double digits in nine straight games and in 12 of UConn’s 14 games this season. With how good he is, we’re not sure how he ended up at Cornell in the first place.
Miller ranks second on the team in scoring (13.3 per) and rebounding (5.5).
We caught up with him recently, as you can see in the video above.
