UConn sits in a precarious position heading into their final tune-up against Central Connecticut on Sunday at noon at the XL Center (1 p.m., SNY).

UConn, coming off a win over Columbia, is 5-4 on the season. It's a record the Huskies aren't used to having, but the American Athletic Conference's weakness has led the Huskies to invert their schedule.

UConn went hard in the non-conference, Texas, Duke, West Virginia, and even has dates left with Stanford and Florida.

UConn (4-4) will play its final game pre-Christmas on Monday night against Columbia at 7:30 p.m. on SNY at the Webster Bank Arena in Bridgeport, Connecticut.

UConn head coach Kevin Ollie swears its going to turn around. UConn is 4-4, a rare mediocre record this time of year for UConn, with the fifth toughest strength of schedule in the country, and its mainly because of one thing -- shooting. ?
