NOTES: SU played its best offensive game of the year vs. UConn, shooting 59 percent from the field. Scoop, Dion Waiters and C.J. Fair converted 21-of-27 shots and combined to score 53 points . . . SU actually out-rebounded the Huskies, 31-29, thanks to Fair's 12 rebounds, including 11 on the defensive end . . . Louisville isn't a great rebounding team either. The Mountaineers pulled down seven more rebounds than the Cardinals . . . Nerlens Noel, a 6-foot-10 center from the Center Tillman School in New Hampshire, took in Saturday's game. Several SU students sported pictures of Noel's high-top haircut and chanted his name as he walked by the student section before the game . . . Connecticut assistant coach George Blaney, filling in for Jim Calhoun, who's way-lowed by a balky back, was very impressed by SU. "It's as good a team as I've seen Jimmy have,'' he said. "It's certainly his deepest team." . . . Boeheim is 7-8 lifetime vs. Pitino, 1-7 since Pitino took over the Cardinals in 2001.
