Oriakhi Heads To Mizzou, Weirdness Ensues Via Twitter

Former UConn big man Alex Oriakhi is heading to Missouri, where he'll have the lane pretty much to himself.

Being 2012, this naturally led to a Twitter meltdown: not a pretty picture here, and a good reminder to Duke fans of the need to maintain grace even when things are not going your way.

In other UConn news, Andre Drummond will join Jeremy Lamb in the NBA draft and freshman Michael Bradley is leaving after minimal time his freshman year.

They did pick up a one-and-done grad student, one RJ Evans who did his undergrad work at Holy Cross.

UConn has taken some big hits lately. They do have talent returning though and Omar Calhoun coming in. The rotation is greatly shortened though. UConn's margin for error is pretty slim.
