Dyson, Austrie Will Arrive Late

UConn will hold a practice this afternoon then leave for Buffalo around 6:45 p.m. Two starters won't be on the flight.

Jerome Dyson and Craig Austrie are working on a class project together won't leave for Buffalo until tomorrow afternoon. They aren't expected to arrive until about 4 p.m.

"It's not what we want," said coach Jim Calhoun, "but it's exactly what's required."

(For what it's worth, Dyson and Austrie are working on a joint project that involves public negotiations.)

Both players arrived after the team for the trip to the Virgin Islands as well, though they arrived the night before the Huskies' first game. Calhoun felt their late arrival hurt the team a bit in its opener against La Salle, because the team wasn't making the same rotations that it had been doing in practice.

We'll see how much of an effect arriving a few hours before gametime will have on Dyson and Austrie.
