STORRS, Conn. – Five players will be honored for their contributions to the UConn men’s basketball program on Wednesday night, as the Huskies celebrate Senior Night when the Temple Owls visit Gampel Pavilion for a 7 p.m. tip-off.
Graduate students Antwoine Anderson, Mike Noyes and David Onuorah, as well as senior Christian Foxen and redshirt junior Terry Larrier, are part of UConn’s graduating class and will play in their final home game, with the pregame ceremony beginning at 6:40 p.m.
The Huskies (13-16, 6-10 American) look to avenge a loss to Temple (16-12, 8-8 American) back on Jan. 28 in Philadelphia, Pa., as the CBS Sports Network and the UConn/IMG Radio Network will provide coverage of the rematch.
UConn attempted to come back from a 23-point deficit to Memphis at Gampel Pavilion on Sunday, but despite a game-high 25 points from junior guard Jalen Adams and a 50-percent field goal percentage (25-50) as a team, the Huskies lost 83-79.
Currently in ninth place in the American Athletic Conference, the Huskies will be fighting for better position in the upcoming conference tournament – taking place at the Amway Center in Orlando, Fla. from March 8-11.
Two games remain for UConn, including a matchup against Temple before a trip to No. 25 Houston on Sunday for the regular-season finale. Adams continues to lead the Huskies in points (18.1), assists (4.5) and minutes (38.0) per game.
UConn leads the all-time series against Temple, 9-8, and has won three of the last four meetings with the Owls.
It’s been an up and down season for Temple, which has had a five-game losing streak and a five-game winning streak. The Owls have a consistent starting lineup, led by Quinton Rose (15.0 ppg) and Shizz Alston (13.2), as well as Obi Enechionyia (10.9 ppg, 6.1 rpg), Josh Rose (8.7 ppg, 3.4 apg), and Ernest Aflakpui (4.8 ppg). The Owls shoot .427 overall and .356 from three-point range. Temple is 4-6 in away games this year and 3-4 in conference road games. They enter Wednesday tied for sixth place in the American standings.
UConn will honor six members of the program with its annual pregame Senior Night ceremony. All will be introduced, with their families, before the game. The honorees will include:
