Who Are You?

Some homecoming for Jeff Adrien. The Brookline, Mass. native didn't any respect during the pregame player introductions. After the P.A. man introduced "No. 5, Hasheem Thabeet" (Thabeet actuallyl wears No. 34), he introduced Gonzaga's fifth and final starter ... and that was it. Adrien ran out on the floor and got high fives from his teammates with no proper introduction.

Just before the opening tap, Adrien's name was finally announced.

As for the game itself -- UConn shot the ball very well in the first half (7-for-16 from 3-point land), paced by 13 points from A.J. Price, nine from Jerome Dyson and eight from Stanley Robinson. The Huskies jumped out to a 6-0 start and owned a 36-27 advantage with 6 1/2 minutes left in the half.

However, Gonzaga finished off the half with an 8-2 flurry, capped by a fallway away treey by Micah Downs just inside the final minute and a trey by David Pendergraft with one tick left on the clock to give the Zags their first and only lead of the half, 45-44.
