The Connecticut Huskies made a miraculous run through the 2014 NCAA Tournament, captivating the nation en route to winning the 2014 championship. Behind the play of Shabazz Napier, the 7-seed Huskies came away with the tournament title.
With Napier and DeAndre Daniels gone from the championship team, Kevin Ollie and the Huskies struggled in 2014-15. They failed to make the NCAA Tournament despite having the likes of Ryan Boatright and Amida Brimah on the roster.
Looking ahead to 2015-16, and Ryan Boatright is gone from the team. However, Saturday gave the Huskies a much-needed boost up front, and they now have one of the more talented front court duos in the NCAA.
While Connecticut loses Ryan Boatright, big man Amida Brimah and wing Daniel Hamilton are both back for the Huskies. The addition of Miller, along with freshmen Jalen Adams (PG) and Steven Enoch (C), give Connecticut a great chance of returning to the NCAA Tournament and contending once again in the American Athletic Conference.
