Connecticut Huskies

The Connecticut Huskies made the NCAA Tournament last season and they return Rodney Purvis who considered leaving for the NBA. Purvis averaged 12.8 points per game last season. The bad news for UConn is that they have to replace Daniel Hamilton who did go to the NBA. Hamilton averaged 12.5 points, 8.9 rebounds and 4.7 assists last season. The Huskies also lost Sterling Gibbs and Shonn Miller who both averaged double-digits in scoring last season.

The Huskies brought in VCU transfer Terry Larrier who averaged 6.6 points and 3 rebounds with the Rams. A number of freshman could make an impact for Connecticut this season including Alterique Gilbert. He should be the point guard this season and he will get some help from Christian Vital. Also looking for playing time are Vance Jackson, Juwan Durham and Mamadou Diarra.

The Huskies do return Jalen Adams who averaged 7.3 points and 2.4 assists per game last season and they have Amida Brimah who averaged 6.5 points, 4.6 rebounds and 2.7 blocks per game.

2016-2017 Connecticut Huskies Betting

The Huskies could drop a little bit straight up and against the spread in 2016-2017 but they should still be a contender in the American Conference. The defense for UConn should be really good so taking their games under the total could be the way to go.

Connecticut Huskies Picks

The Huskies have a lot of players who can score but whether they have a true star is yet to be determined. Purvis could be that player but time will tell. The frontcourt is definitely loaded which means Connecticut should contend for the league title this season but how far they go if they make the NCAA Tournament will be determined by how good the backcourt turns out to be.
