The Connecticut Huskies are stacked when it comes to their guard play. So getting Lasan Kromah for the 2013-14 college basketball season wasn’t necessarily needed, but he could still play a big role for the team regardless.
Kromah averaged 10.1 points per game and 3.7 rebounds per game last season in just 24.5 minutes per game. He definitely needs to improve his shot, shooting 22.2 percent from behind the arc. However, he did shoot 47.6 percent from the field.
Shabazz Napier and Ryan Boatright will get the most minutes out of all of the guards and Omar Calhoun will not be too far behind them. All three of those players will help make up one of the best backcourts in college hoops, but that does not mean that Kromah cannot emerge on this team.
Who knows, Connecticut might go with a four guard lineup at times. It definitely needs to rebound better in the upcoming season, but if the guards of this team are hot, the Huskies will be nearly impossible to stop on the offensive side of the ball.
No matter how you look at it, Kromah is a talented player and he can provide a spark off the bench–if that is how the Huskies plan on using him.
Connecticut will be a very exciting team to watch in the 2013-14 season and the great guard play has a lot to do with it. Adding Kromah makes the Huskies a legitimate title contender for the AAC and possibly even more. To say the least, this should be a great season for the Huskies.
