Pomeroy Prediction- UCONN 81-67

Key Players-
#4 Jeff Adrien- 6'7", 243 lbs.- 13.4 PPG, 10.0 RPG
#34 Hasheem Thabeet- 7'3", 263 lbs.- 13.5 PPG, 10.7 RPG
#12 A.J. Price- 6'2", 187 lbs.- 13.2 PPG, 4.6 APG, 42.3% 3PA

Scouting Report-
Don't force a lot of turnovers (328th), the only real weak part of their game.
Hold opponents to an insanely low amount of free throws per game while allowing one of the lowest field goal percentages in the country.
Don't shoot the lights out, but wear opponents down with offensive rebounding and trips to the free throw line.
