New Hampshire men's hoop falls to UConn, 97-70

STORRS, Connecticut --The 16th-ranked Huskies rolled to their 71st consecutive win over a non-conference New England school, posting a 97-70 victory over New Hampshire.

Albert Mouring scored 24 points and freshmen Caron Butler and Johnnie Selvie added 18 apiece for Connecticut.

The Huskies (6-1) also have beaten the likes of Quinnipiac and Brown this season, but the schedule will get tougher, if only briefly.

Connecticut has a week off to prepare for No. 5 Arizona. After a two-week break for exams, the Huskies tune up for the start of Big East play by facing Fairfield, Rhode Island and Stony Brook.

New Hampshire (1-3) was able to score early and trailed only 35-29 with less than five minutes left in the first half. But the Wildcats could not stop Connecticut inside or on the boards.

The Huskies shot 49 percent from the field en route to a 53-39 halftime lead and slowly pulled away in the second half.

Austin Ganly led all scorers with 29 points for New Hampshire.

The Wildcats will return to action on Dec. 7 at Delaware for its America East opener.
