Price, Dyson Miss Practice
***A.J. Price did not practice today and received treatment for a left ankle and left foot sprain. His status is day to day.
***Jerome Dyson missed practice because he returned home for the funeral of a family member in Maryland.
***The 17 rebounds for Hasheem Thabeet is the most ever by a Husky under Jim Calhoun in the season opener and the most in a season opener by any Husky in the lid-lifter in 41 years. The last time a Husky opened the year with more rebounds was Bill Corley, who grabbed 19 boards on December 2, 1967. Jeff Adrien had the Calhoun-era mark of 16 boards in the season opener in 2006-07 against Quinnipiac.
