UConn wins on buzzer-beater

– Shabazz Napier hit a jumper from the free throw line as time expired to keep No. 12 Connecticut undefeated with a 65-64 victory over No. 15 Florida on Monday night.

Napier, limping on a left ankle he hurt during a four-point play with 33 seconds left, escaped a trap around 30 feet from the basket and got off a wild shot that missed but was tipped blindly back by DeAndre Daniels. Napier grabbed the ball and let go a left-handed jumper that went through as the horn sounded and set off a deafening cheer from the sellout crowd of 10,167 at Gampel Pavilion.

Napier finished with 26 points.

No. 17 IOWA STATE 99, AUBURN 70: In Ames, Iowa, Dustin Hogue set career highs with 22 points and 16 rebounds to lead the Cyclones (6-0).

TRINE 71, ANDERSON 48: In Angola, Tyler Good and Nick Tatu combined for 33 points to lead the Thunder.


No. 12 SOUTH CAROLINA 79, NC CENTRAL 27: In Columbia, S.C., Tiffany Mitchell scored 19 points to lead the Gamecocks.

No. 24 GONZAGA 82, FAIRFIELD 42: In Spokane, Wash., Haiden Palmer led four starters in double figures with 18 points to lead the Bulldogs.
