Connecticut Vs. Georgetown: Shabazz Napier, Alex Oriakhi Removed From Huskies' Starting Lineup

The struggling Connecticut Huskies, losers of three in a row coming into Wednesday's game against Georgetown, will make two significant lineup changes, coach Jim Calhoun announced on Tuesday. Guard Shabazz Napier and forward Alex Oriakhi will both go to the bench, replaced by Ryan Boatright and Roscoe Smith, respectively.

Via the Hartford Courant:

"We have to push the pace," Calhoun said Tuesday as the Huskies were checking into their hotel. "We can't win at the pace we've been playing."

Napier and Oriakhi are two mainstays of the team. Napier is second on the club in scoring, averaging 14.3 points per game, while Oriakhi is second on the team in rebounding behind center Andre Drummond. Both players were also starters on UConn's National Title team last season.
