STORRS — Phil Nolan and Leon Tolksdorf are heading in opposite directions on the scale, but hope to be going in the same direction on the court. Both UConn sophomores, Tolksdorf and Nolan returned to campus looking like completely different...

It may have been DePaul out there, as in near-the-bottom-of-the-Big-East DePaul. But it was still a Big East road game, and they're never easy to add to the collection.
So the UConn men's basketball team had to work for it. In a quick turnaround from...
