DeAndre Daniels Admits To Struggling With Lack Of Confidence

Once considered a top-10 player nationally, DeAndre Daniels averaged 3 points and 2.1 rebounds during a disappointing freshman season at UConn.

"I wasn't myself and I never played my game and just played like a robot half the time," Daniels says. "I didn't know when to shoot or how to shoot or when to pass or dribble or do any of that stuff. I played like a robot. I was just confused."

Daniels sometimes shot around in Gampel Pavilion after night games last season.

"It was never lack of work," Daniels said. "Just a lack of confidence."

Kevin Ollie intends to use the 6-foot-8 Daniels at power forward this season.

"When we secure the basketball, with DeAndre at the four, I don't think there are too many teams in America that can keep up with him," Ollie says.
