He also considered Georgetown, Clemson, Xavier and USC.

Tyrek Coger moved in with Rodney Purvis and his mother in Raleigh, N.C., when he was 14 or 15 years old.

Purvis' mother, Shanda McNair, was Tyrek's godmother and Rodney considered him a brother.

After Coger tragically passed away on July 21 following a team workout at Oklahoma State, Purvis decided he would wear his No. 15 during the 2016-17 season to honor his fallen brother.

COLUMBUS, Ohio - The University of Connecticut women's basketball team has not dropped a season opener in 20 years, part of the reason it has not lost back-to-back games since March of 1993.

A year ago, the Huskies made their debut with a 46-game winning streak and after Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis buried 10 3-pointers on UC Davis it seemed like they had picked up where they had left off. But two days later they were beaten by Stanford in overtime and an emotional All-American Breanna Stewart stated they had to change to reach their goals.

That change didn't end after UConn won its final 37 games and its third straight national championship last April. The lessons learned continued into this preseason and the top-ranked Huskies plan to take those with them Monday when they visit No. 6 Ohio State at Value City Arena here.

STORRS, Conn. - Through its unparalleled run of success that's lasted for more than a quarter-century now, the University of Connecticut women's basketball team has stayed away from catchy cliches or slogans, instead letting its actions do the talking.

With an opportunity at a history-making season, the Huskies won't change and will go with what got them here.

"There's a lot of times you hear, 'Don't play to lose,' or 'Refuse to lose,' " UConn guard Kia Nurse said. "For us it's a matter of us continuing to take nothing for granted. Just because you put on this UConn jersey doesn't mean you're going to win the game. What's special, I think, is that every player understands that we have to go out there and perform at our best each and every day to make sure that we don't lose."
