The Huskies had about a 90-minute practice this morning, starting at 10 a.m., and Jim Calhoun was in attendance. Hasheem Thabeet, who missed a small bit of Saturday night's game with a right hip pointer, also participated.
In August 2007 I was named the New Haven Register's men's basketball beat writer. Prior to that, I covered the Red Sox as the Journal Register Co.'s traveling beat writer for three seasons. Yes, 2004 was my first year on the Red Sox beat.
Previous to that, I covered the Providence College Friars and Pawtucket Red Sox for JRC's Rhode Island and Mass. papers. I am a Rhode Island native, growing up in Barrington.
