Daniels injured the ankle in Saturday's win over Rutgers, and returned in the second half after he hurt it, but was placed in a protective boot and didn't practice on Wednesday. The Huskies are off for a week before they play at Cincinnati, and with the teeth of the schedule coming the Huskies are sitting the limited Daniels out.
The Huskies will start F Niels Giffey in his place. If the Huskies need more size and rebounding, Tyler Olander, Phil Nolan and Kentan Facey could play with Amida Brimah in a bigger lineup.
Daniels us UConn's second leading scorer averaging 13.3 points per game is second in rebounding at 5.6.
