The Univeristy of Connecticut men's basketball team kick off their regular season against the Colgate Raiders on Friday night in the Gampel Pavilion.
Head coach Kevin Ollie and his team played three exhibition games against Providence, Merrimack and Queens College. His team will be without junior G Jalen Adams, who was suspended for conduct detrimental to the team. He was a All-AAC First Team selection last season.
Terry Larrier and Alterique Gilbert are returning from injuries for the Huskies, and should provide quality minutes for the team.
The Huskies crushed Queens College on Sunday, taking the exhibition win 100-43 to get ready for the season. Freshman Josh Carlton had a team-high 20 points.
UConn has won seven straight games against Colgate, and are 18-7 all-time.
