UConn Game Notes
The Huskies’ best player is junior forward Adama Sanogo. Sanogo leads UConn in scoring with 21.4 points per game and rebounding with 8.0 per game. The 6’9” 245-pound Mali native has been making 67.7% of his field goal attempts this year and 57.1% of his three-point tries. He’s recorded at least 11 points and 5 rebounds in every game for the Huskies this year and figures to be a big factor on Thursday.
Oregon Game Notes
Adama Sanogo’s counterpart in this game will likely be another fellow Mali native, N’Faly Dante. Dante is a 6’11” 230-pound senior center who is averaging 14.8 points and 9 rebounds per game. Both figures lead the Ducks on the season. N’Faly Dante is more of an interior defender, as he’s blocked 2 shots per game on the season. UConn Adama Sanogo may step outside and take some more jump shots to pull Dante away from the rim and open up the lane for UConn’s guards. How the matchup between Sanogo and Dante plays out will go a long way in determining the outcome of this contest.
