UConn Insider Podcast: Syracuse Should Get Huskies' Best Shot At The Garden

There’s a distinct decibel level at Madison Square Garden, a “sustained roar” reserved for certain sporting events at the storied arena, according to UConn men’s beat reporter Dom Amore.

College basketball games involving the UConn men have historically hit that mark. And the Huskies will have another chance to get there Tuesday when they take on old Big East foe Syracuse in the Jimmy V Classic.

Amore discusses this and more on the latest episode of the UConn Insider podcast. He breaks down how the Huskies have narrowly avoided RPI-killing losses in recent days, in contrast to this time last year (3:30); Jalen Adams’ strong shooting performance in helping them stave off Monmouth (5:00); Alterique Gilbert’s shoulder injury (8:45); Christian Vital’s emergence as a reliable No. 2 scoring option (13:30); UConn’s history of finding another gear in games like this (17:00); and the continued search for reliable rim protection in the post-Brimah era (21:00).

Amore wraps up by sharing some of his own memories of covering games at the world’s most famous arena (23:45).
