UConn men’s basketball Podcast: UConn men’s basketball
The UConn Huskies are 2-0 at the dawn of the Dan Hurley era and optimism is high.
Hurley, who puts on a show as he prowls and bounces on the sideline, has fans excited and his players are responding to his energy. After two sub-.500 seasons, there’s a buzz around the program.
The Huskies are off to Madison Square Garden for a Thursday meeting with former Big East foe Syracuse, a game that will provide a barometer for the team and will be a fun early-season show for fans.
What do we make of the Hurley era? Hearst Connecticut Media Group beat writer David Borges talked all things UConn on our latest sports podcast. Borges talks about the meeting with Syracuse and the importance of facing old rivals, he discusses Hurley’s demeanor and recruiting skills, and he takes stock of the team.
Also on the podcast: sports columnist Jeff Jacobs talks to Putnam Science Academy coach Tom Espinosa on national signing day. Jacobs also chats with Putnam prospect Akok Akok, a UConn recruiting target.
