NEED NIELS: After a 15-point outburst against Stony Brook, Niels Giffey has scored just two points in 49 minutes over his past two games. Giffey could be in line for more minutes depending on DeAndre Daniels' status (back spasms).

THE BIG E: Enosch Wolf is shooting 68 percent from the field (17-for-25) thus far. He's given the frontcourt an unexpected lift and a big body on the low block. "We're not shooting that well as a team, but I look down at his stats and I get a smile on my face," coach Kevin Ollie said.

THE 3-POINT LINE: UConn has used the 3-point line to stay in some games -- Stony Brook and N.C. State, in particular -- but Harvard has been prolific from deep. The Crimson are shooting 43.2% as a team, which ranks 10th in the nation.
