Good morning, New York sports fans!
- Former Syracuse coach Paul Pasqualoni is the new head man at Connecticut. Our man Jared Smith has been providing all the details on this story. I'm happy for Pasqualoni, who has been working in the NFL the past few seasons. He did a good job at Syracuse overall, and it's nice to see him get another opportunity.
- Rafael Soriano is a New York Yankee, and really no one should be shocked by that. Even though Yankee GM Brian Cashman had been saying he would not surrender a No. 1 pick to sign Soriano, which he now has to do, this fits Cashman's MO the past few seasons. Stay under-the-radar and then make a big strike seemingly from nowhere. This is a great move by the Yankees as Soriano, who closed for the Rays last season, was easily the best available pitcher on the market.
- Wojtek Wolski chose a great time to net his first goal as a New York Ranger, scoring the only goal in a 1-0 victory over Vancouver.
- The New York Knicks have renewed life in the seemingly never-ending Carmelo Anthony trade drama.
