Talented yet untested, Connecticut now gets to see where its bolstered roster stands at the moment.

The No. 18 Huskies are part of a stacked field at the Battle 4 Atlantis tournament, where they open play Wednesday night against Michigan in a matchup of prominent programs coming off down seasons.

After following up its 2014 national championship by missing the NCAA Tournament last season, Connecticut (3-0) appears poised for a return to upper-tier status after adding graduate transfers Sterling Gibbs and Shonn Miller and heralded freshman Jalen Adams to a group of four returning starters headlined by 2014-15 American Athletic Conference Rookie of the Year Daniel Hamilton.

Connecticut's newest stars were pleasantly surprised with their first experience at Gampel Pavilion. However, the No. 19 Huskies' impressive play wasn't much of a stunner.

Sterling Gibbs and Shonn Miller will try to lead UConn to another strong home showing Tuesday night in the 117th meeting with former Yankee Conference rival New Hampshire (SNY, 7 p.m.).

After missing out on the NCAA Tournament last season, coach Kevin Ollie looked to get the Huskies back to their 2014 championship form by bringing in Gibbs and Miller, and the graduate transfers made an immediate impact Friday in a 100-56 home win over Maine.
