Light reading

The Big East took notice of Jeff Adrien’s four consecutive double-doubles to start the season by naming him to their weekly honor roll.

Check out the rest of the Big East accolades.

At Big East media day last month at the Garden, a number of coaches pointed to DePaul, a middle-of-the-pack team that may cause problems for the rest of the conference.

The Blue Demons gave Kentucky a problem last night. Don’t let their 1-3 record fool you.

I’ll hit ESPN once in a while, but this grouping from their analysts had a few things to note.

Jamar Wilson of Albany, UConn’s next opponent Sunday, had a great week. So did Butler, which upended Indiana and now heads to NYC for the preseason NIT semifinal. Between them and Old Dominion dropping Georgetown, the early mid-major talk begins to percolate.

Also, the notebook mentions the Boston College-Providence game. After respective losses to Vermont and Brown, these two teams are heading in the same direction.

Not good.

A quick look at the round-up from last night. Of course, tune in for Duke and Marquette tonight. But also take note of Curtis Sumpter’s night at Villanova and some non-conference brewing down at Georgia Tech. The Wreck is in Maui and ranked No. 19.

That will change by mid-February, when UConn heads to the Georgia Dome.
