Roundtable: Uncomfortable situation

UConn said Friday that the 6-foot-11 Drummond has decided to wear No. 12 for the Huskies, after originally being assigned No. 15, the same number worn last year by Kemba Walker.

Connecticut has no scholarships available after losing three to NCAA rules violations and a poor academic performance rating.

Michael Bradley has volunteered to give up his scholarship and apply for financial aid, sources with knowledge of the situation told ESPN.com’s Andy Katz. The 6-10 Bradley would play as a walk-on.

Drummond made the surprise announcement that he would join Connecticut last week on his Twitter page.

The Huskies are coming off a national-championship season in which they finished 32-9. They won the Big East tournament in New York as well, and defeated Butler 53-41 in Houston to win the NCAA tournament.
