Sanogo leads unbeaten UConn past Delaware State 95-60


HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Adama Sanogo scored 26 points to lead No. 25 UConn to a 95-60 victory over Delaware State on Sunday.

Donovan Clingan had 16 points and three blocked shots, Jordan Hawkins finished 11 points and nine rebounds, Joe Calcaterra added 11 points, five rebounds and five assists and Alex Karaban scored 10 points for unbeaten UConn (5-0).

Jevin Muniz scored 21 points and Kyle Johnson added 15 for Delaware State (1-4).

The Hornets played without leading scorer Brendon Stone, who is averaging 15.8 points and 7.8 rebounds. That left Raymond Somerville as the only Delaware State player to start every game this season.

Sanogo had 14 of his points in the first half as the Huskies built a 57-24 lead at the break.

Muniz, who scored the first eight points for the Hornets, and Johnson shot a combined 5 for 12 in the first half, with Muniz making both of Delaware State’s 3-pointers. The rest of the team shot 3 of 15 and 0 for 3 from 3-point range.

The Hornets did make five of their first nine shots in the second half and UConn narrowly outscored Delaware State in the second half, 38-36.

UConn matched its season-high of 10 3-pointers with 11:55 left to play. The Huskies finished with 13 3-pointers.


Delaware State: The Hornets played their second Big East opponent in the last three games. The Hornets led Viillanova by three points at the end of the first half before falling 60-50. Delaware State also played on the road against Virginia Tech to help prepare for the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference portion of the schedule.

UConn: The Huskies went 5-0 while playing their first five games at home. Things will get more challenging when UConn heads to Portland, Oregon, to take part in the Phil Knight Invitational. UConn meets Oregon on Thursday, followed by a contest against either Michigan State or Alabama on Friday.


Delaware State: At Liberty University on Saturday.

UConn: Heads to the Phil Knight Invitational and a first-round game against Oregon on Thursday.
