Connecticut keeps UM hemmed in

STORRS, Conn. -- Connecticut made sure nothing burst its bubble Saturday. Not even Miami's vaunted three-point shooting.

The Huskies needed every bit of a 23-point lead to hold off the Hurricanes 60-53 and keep their hopes alive for an NCAA Tournament bid.

Albert Mouring led UConn with 19 points and Caron Butler added 17.

The Huskies, on the NCAA bubble, close out the regular season this week against No. 18 Notre Dame and Seton Hall. The Huskies have won five of seven.

"Nothing's definite," Butler said. "We're trying to knock off the last two games and hopefully we'll be in it."

The Huskies never let Miami settle in behind the three-point line, where the 'Canes are most dangerous. They are the top three-point shooting team in the Big East but made 4 of 19.

"They lit us up last time on threes and we were not going to let them do that today," UConn coach Jim Calhoun said. "I thought we were just magnificent defensively."

DELAWARE ST. 63, B-CC 56: Andre Matthews scored 17 on 6-for-6 shooting for the visiting Hornets.


TEMPLE 70, DAYTON 62: Lynn Greer had 26 points and Kevin Lyde 12 points and 12 rebounds for the host Owls.

UMASS 64, GW 56: Monty Mack scored 24 as the visiting Minutemen tied Xavier for second place in the Atlantic 10 with their ninth win in 11 games.

PURDUE 78, MICHIGAN 59: Carson Cunningham and Joe Marshall scored 17 each and the visiting Boilermakers hit all 25 of their free throws to end a six-game losing streak.

MISSOURI 69, BAYLOR 59: Brian Grawer scored 18 on six three-pointers in his home finale for the Tigers. Missouri is 4-2 without Kareem Rush, the Big 12's leading scorer. Rush, who had surgery for ligament damage to his left thumb this month, could return wearing a protective splint Monday at Texas.

OKLA. ST. 52, KANSAS ST. 47: Fredrik Jonzen hit a jump shot and two free throws in the final 36 seconds as the host Cowboys survived a season-worst 32 percent shooting.

TEXAS A&M 62, TEXAS TECH 52: Bernard King scored 18 as the host Aggies completed their first sweep of the season.

NEW MEXICO 54, COLO. ST. 51: Ruben Douglas made 6 of 12 three-pointers and scored 23 as the visiting Lobos beat the Rams for the 11th straight time.

UTAH 82, BYU 75: Kevin Bradley came off the bench to score 18 and Britton Johnsen added 15 to lift the host Utes into first place in the Mountain West.

WYOMING 82, AIR FORCE 72: Marcus Bailey led five players in double figures with 15 points as the host Cowboys stayed within a half-game of Utah.

PRINCETON: With former presidential candidate Bill Bradley and former coach Pete Carril on hand, the Tigers celebrated 100 years of basketball. Former coach Butch van Breda Kolff and former NBA players John Hummer and Geoff Petrie joined the celebration.
