PISCATAWAY, N.J. — Donald Brown admits to feeling a little anxious entering a weekend when some 50 friends and family members will witness the homecoming game between UConn and Rutgers.
“I’m emotional, I’m anxious, I’m excited,” Brown, a redshirt junior at Connecticut (5-1), said in a phone interview. “I’m ready to come back to Jersey and play.”
