UConn cruises past Prairie View

Playing its first game since March 10, the UConn Huskies shook off some early rust and went on to thump Prairie View A & M, 87-44, in the opening round of the NCAA tournament in Storrs, CT.

The defending national champions took control early and manhandled the 16th-seeded team in the Lincoln region on their way to a 44-12 halftime lead. The second half was more of the same as the Huskies rolled up their 35th win of the season.

UConn will play St. Joe's in the second round on the tournament.
