  1. This is a sad end to this kid’s life. Violence in Connecticut is getting
    out of hand; mostly in the inner city, but still, there is no reason that the
    uconn community should be preparing for his burial right now. This is just terrible
    and my prayers go out to his family.

  2. How horrible. My heart goes out to his family and friends. So sad; too young to go. We will pray for his family and teammates during this difficult time.
