STORRS, Conn. (AP) UConn hasn't had many comfortable wins in conference play over the past two seasons, but the Huskies showed Saturday they can dominate when they are clicking.
Jalen Adams scored a season-high 31 points and UConn beat Tulane 87-71. Josh Carlton and Christian Vital each added 18 points for the Huskies (11-8, 2-4 American Athletic Conference), who snapped a two-game losing skid.
"This is a challenging program, it's a program that is used to winning," said Vital, who reached 1,000 points for his career with a 3-point shot in the first half. "When we signed up to come here, we should have known what the responsibilities were coming to a program like this. I think guys are growing up and we're maturing and we're just starting to gel as a unit. Hopefully tonight was an indication of more things to come"
