UConn Men's Notebook: Huskies Seeking Two Solid Halves

The Huskies came into the game on Wednesday night looking to put two halves together.

The Huskies had a solid first half shooting at Central Florida on Feb. 11, shooting 43.3 percent, but improved to 45.5 as the Knights threatened a comeback. In the win over Memphis on Feb. 16, the Huskies shot 33.3 percent in the first half, including 2-for-12 on three pointers. In the second half, they shot 54.2 percent, and 5-for-9.
