It's a Go for Charlie O.

Couple of pregame notes from Gampel:

***UConn got the word Thursday night that Charles Okwandu is cleared to play. He was shooting around in the Huskies' pregame warm-up drills.

***The Huskies have left tickets for coveted recruit Durand Scott, but aren't sure if he'll show up.

***Ater Majok is in the house.

***Good story from UConn assistant coach Patrick Sellers, who went up to Boston with Jim Calhoun on Thursday for a speaking engagement. Doc Rivers was at the event, too, and he told Sellers a story that speaks to Ray Allen's work ethic.

On Wednesday night, Allen went 1-for-9 shooting from 3-point range in the Celtics' thrilling, 103-102 win over Atlanta. The following morning at about 8:45 a.m., Rivers was sitting in his office when he heard a ball pounding in the gym outside. He went out to look and it was Allen, working on his shot. Allen wound up working out in the gym from about 8:30 a.m. to noon on what was scheduled as a day off for the Celts.
