UConn basketball primed for a fall?

We interrupt the baseball season, and the NHL and NBA playoffs, for words of warning about the 2012-13 University of Connecticut basketball season:
It could be ugly.
The Huskies have not had a losing season since 1986-87, Jim Calhoun's first season as coach.
But that streak might be in jeopardy.
Guard Jeremy Lamb and big men Andre Drummond and Alex Oriakhi have left the program. Lamb and Drummond declared for the NBA draft; Oriakhi is transferring to Missouri.
In April, the school announced it has released Michael Bradley and Roscoe Smith from their scholarships.
With the status of Bradley and Smith uncertain, UConn was left with six returning scholarship players.
The Huskies have signed Omar Calhoun, a 6-foot-4 guard from New York.
Also hanging over the UConn program is a ban from participating in the 2013 NCAA tournament because the Huskies failed to meet NCAA academic qualifications.
The school appealed the ban.
