El-Amin Featured in This Week's SI

Former UConn point guard Khalid El-Amin will be featured in this week's Sports Illustrated "Where Are They Now?" issue, which will update readers about stars from 1959, 1969, 1979, 1989 and, in El-Amin's case, 1999.

As you surely know, El-Amin lasted just 50 games in the NBA after leading the Huskies to their first NCAA tournament title in 1999. He has found success abroad, however, twice earning Turkish league MVP awards during a two-year stint with Besiktas Cola Turka. He earned the same honors in the Ukraine while carrying Azovmash Mariupol to the 2006 national championship.

So on to '10.....please please an update on recruiting front. The Knight visit was nice, but is anyone even in OH covering this AAU action w/. Coach's camp going on? This next class is huge for us an UCONN nation is starting to get a bit worried.

Any truth to word that we are now out of Melo running?

Had some time off for the holiday, and been at Fenway and CitiField the past two nights doing features on local players in the majors (Craig Breslow, Rajai Davis and Brad Ausmus). Will get back to the UConn front shortly, I promise.

As for Dyson, he has been cleared to participate in full-contact drills and games. Had that in a blog post (and story) a couple of weeks ago.

I believe it is just Ukraine, and not "the Ukraine".
