Walk-On Over for Some Pizza

UConn men's basketball walk-on John Lindner, a Cheshire resident, is manning the Courtside Pizza stand at the Pilot Pen Tennis tournament. Lindner's friend's dad owns Shoreline Foods, one of the event's main vendors, so he's helping out at the stand for the whole week.

Lindner, a senior-to-be, should have a spot back on the UConn roster next season, though he'll have a better idea following a team meeting on Aug. 24. He's been playing in a summer league in Cheshire.

The 6-foot-6, 250-pound (at least) bruiser was one of the strongest players on the Huskies' team last season and provides plenty of muscle in practices.
