LaFleur Down Under

UConn assistant coach Andre LaFleur flew all the way down to Sydney, Australia following Saturday's loss to Georgetown to take a look at intriguing, 6-foot-9 forward Ater Majok. However, LaFleur didn't get a chance to watch Majok play, since the Sudanese native was bothered by a knee injury. The injury doesn't appear to be anything serious.

Kansas and Duke are also high on Majok, but UConn is the only school to visit him at his home in Australia so far. The Huskies are trying to line up Majok for an official visit later this season, after he returns to the States to attend the American International School in Virginia.

Majok, who has already made a visit to Maryland, should graduate this spring and hopes to play college ball next fall.

LaFleur wound up spending about 40 hours in the air on the trip. He returned to Los Angeles on Tuesday and took a red-eye to Boston, arriving back in Connecticut around 11 a.m. today.
