UConn officially adds 3 to basketball roster

STORRS, Conn. (AP) UConn has officially added three off-season acquisitions to its men's basketball team.

Guard Sterling Gibbs and forward Shonn Miller have joined the Huskies for a final year of eligibility after graduating from Seton Hall and Cornell.

Forward Terry Larrier has transferred from VCU, where he averaged 6.6 points and 3.0 rebounds during his freshman season.

Larrier will have to sit out next season under NCAA transfer rules. Gibbs and Miller are immediately eligible to play.

UConn had not been allowed to comment on the acquisitions before Monday, when the players signed financial aid agreements.

Gibbs scored 888 points and had 240 assists in two years at Seton Hall. Miller, an All-Ivy League selection last season, finished three years at Cornell with 1,065 points, 608 rebounds and 154 blocked shots.
