    Updated: 1 hr ago

    LONG BRANCH, N.J. (AP) — Justin Robinson scored 16 points and made key plays late to help Monmouth beat Siena 63-57 on Sunday. Siena (10-19, 7-13 Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference) will open the MAAC Tournament against Niagara on Thursday. Monmouth (17-14, 13-7) faces Canisius in a quarterfinal on Saturday. Monmouth, overcoming an 11-point second half deficit, took the lead for good when Robinson hit a 3-pointer for a 56-55 edge. Robinson then forced a turnover and Siena intentionally fouled Deon Jones, who made a pair of free throws to make it 58-55. With fouls to give, Monmouth intentionally fouled Siena twice.

    Updated: 1 hr ago

    TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — Candice Warthen scored 23 points to lead Arizona over Utah 64-41 on Sunday. Warthen was 10 of 13 as Arizona (10-19, 3-15 Pac-12) shot 52 percent from the floor. JaLea Bennett was 7 of 7 for 14 points. The Wildcats made a nine-point run late in the first half — including a three-point play by LaBrittney Jones — and led 35-29 at the break. Utah (9-20, 3-15) missed its first 12 shots in the second half as Arizona built a 16-point lead with 9:43 to go, punctuated by Keyahndra Cannon's 3-pointer to make it 51-35. Utah couldn't respond — in fact, its cold shooting day just continued as it did not make a basket in the last 7:20 of the game. Utah was led by Joeseta Fatuesi with 12 points and n

    HARTFORD, Conn. — After a season of ebbs and flows, false starts and sputtering, another defining moment arrived for UConn. The Huskies’ 10-point lead was gone, and it was time to stand up to the big kids on the American Athletic Conference block, or head backward again. This time, the Huskies wrote the right ending. Rodney Purvis and Daniel Hamilton made one big play after another as the Huskies reasserted themselves over the final 10 minutes to knock off 21st-ranked Southern Methodist 81-73 at the XL Center on Sunday. And in doing so, UConn (17-11, 10-6 AAC) left no doubt that winning the league tournament in this building in two weeks will not be easy for out-of-towners. Purvis, in his best game as a Husky,

    BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) — It hasn't been the type of season David Kravish was expecting, neither from himself nor his California teammates.
