AVON, Conn. (AP) _ Donny Marshall and Ricky Moore are again calling Connecticut home.

The former University of Connecticut players said Friday they will play for the Connecticut Pride of the Continental Basketball Association.

Marshall, a 1995 UConn graduate, was a second-round draft pick of Cleveland. In his two seasons with the Cavaliers, he averaged just under 3.0 points per game. He averaged 15.8 points and 5.8 rebounds as a senior at UConn.

Moore is a defensive specialist who helped the Huskies to their first ever NCAA Championship in March. He played in a record-setting 134 games during his career at UConn, averaging 6.9 points.

The Pride, who are the defending CBA champions, begin their season on Nov. 19.
