USF Loses To UCONN 69-64 In OT

STORRS, Conn. (AP) — Shabazz Napier scored 24 points, and hit three 3-pointers in overtime, leading Connecticut to a 69-64 win over South Florida.

Ryan Boatright added 17 points for the Huskies (15-5, 5-3 Big East) who overcame a 12-point halftime deficit to win their third consecutive game.

Toarlyn Fitzpatrick scored 22 points and grabbed 10 rebounds for South Florida (10-11, 1-8), which dropped its fourth straight.

South Florida held the Huskies to just five first-half field goals and led 27-15 at the half. But the Huskies matched their first-half output 3½ minutes into the second half, going on a 15-2 run after intermission to take the lead.

Napier missed a long 3-pointer that would have won the game in regulation, but responded with two straight to open the extra period.
