Connecticut (1-0) opened its season Monday night in Hartford and will play on campus for the first time Friday night when the Huskies host Boston University (1-0). UConn will not have junior guard Andre Jackson Jr., who is recovering from a broken finger, and second guard Jordan Hawkins is in doubt after going into concussion protocols. Hawkins took a hard fall in Monday’s game. The Huskies have played in the last two NCAA tournaments, falling to lower-headed opponents in the first round of each year. Coach Dan Hurley is entering his fifth season with Storrs. The Terriers haven’t participated in the NCAA since 2011, but they reached the CBI quarterfinals last spring.
