NCAA MBB TOP 25 CAPSULES: No. 10 UConn topples Washington

NEW YORK — Shabazz Napier scored 15 of his 20 points in the second half and grabbed six rebounds to lead No. 10 Connecticut to an 82-70 victory over Washington on Sunday.

Fellow guard Ryan Boatright had 16 points and five rebounds and Lasan Kromah scored 14 points for Connecticut (10-1), which fell into a double-digit hole early in its first true road game of the season but controlled the game in the second half.

C.J. Wilcox led Washington (6-5) with 19 points on 6-of-15 shooting and had four assists. Darin Johnson had 13 points for Washington and Mike Anderson, who is from Hartford, Conn., added 10 points.

Wilcox hit two straight 3-pointers to give UW a 31-17 lead with 7 minutes to go in the first half, but those shots seemed to wake up the visiting Huskies.

UConn answered with a 15-2 run, including a stretch of 10 straight points. Connecticut took the lead for the first time since the opening minutes when DeAndre Daniel's layup made it 39-37 with 1:46 left in the first half, and UConn led 43-39 at halftime.

NO. 11 WICHITA STATE 77, NC CENTRAL 66

Darius Carter scored 19 points and Wichita State overcome Jeremy Ingram's 37-point night in a victory over North Carolina Central.

Cleanthony Early had 16 points and 10 rebounds to help the Shockers (12-0) extend the best start in school history. Ron Baker added 15 points, and Fred VanVleet had 14.

Ingram was 12 of 21 from the floor and 7 of 13 from the 3-point line for North Carolina Central (7-3). He had 27 points in the second half.

No. 12 BAYLOR 81, SOUTHERN U. 56

Isaiah Austin had 14 points and 10 rebounds as Baylor won its 10th straight home game.

Austin had his first double-double of the season while leading five players in double-figure scoring for the Bears (10-1).

Brady Heslip had 13 points for Baylor, while Cory Jefferson and Rico Gathers both had 12. Kenny Chery had 10 points.

Tre Lynch had 27 points, including five 3-pointers, to lead Southern (3-9).

The Jaguars, who made it to the NCAA tournament last season as the SWAC tournament champions, are 0-4 against Top 25 teams this season. They were coming off a 69-43 loss at top-ranked Arizona on Thursday night.

Jefferson had 11 points on 5-of-6 shooting by halftime, when Baylor led 36-26.

No. 17 IOWA ST. 79, GEORGE MASON 67

Georges Niang scored 22 points for Iowa State in the first round of the Diamond Head Classic.

The Cyclones (9-0) had their second-lowest scoring game of the season but still managed to extend their winning streak. Iowa State - the top scoring team in the country - was one of 10 undefeated teams in Division I at the start of Sunday.

Melvin Ejim, Iowa State's leading scorer going into the game, had 14 points and 11 rebounds while DeAndre Kane had 13 points and eight assists.

Patrick Holloway scored 19 points for George Mason (5-5) and Byron Allen had 14.

Three minutes into the second half, Niang stole the ball from Marko Gujanicic and his layup gave Iowa State its first 10-point lead at 40-30. After that, George Mason pulled no closer than five points with 6:18 left.

No. 25 IOWA 85, ARK.-PINE BLUFF 61

Josh Oglesby scored 13 points in his season debut as Iowa rolled.

The Hawkeyes (11-2) opened their final non-conference game with a 39-5 run. Jarrod Uthoff scored 16 points and Adam Woodbury added 10.

Oglesby missed Iowa's first 12 games with a broken foot. He made his first four 3-pointers during a 6-minute stretch in the first half.

Tevin Hammond scored 19 points for Pine Bluff (2-9), which lost its ninth straight.

The Hawkeyes shot 75 percent from the field in taking a 52-15 halftime lead. Iowa committed a season-worst 27 turnovers but dominated the rebounding 42-27.
