UConn enters halftime of the Paradise Jam championship facing a 30-27 deficit against New Mexico.
Both teams were involved in emotional, back-and-forth wins last night, so the sloppiness — the teams combined for 15 turnovers before either reached 15 points — isn’t too surprising.
Freshman shooting guard Omar Calhoun has a team-high eight points and Shabazz Napier, the Big East player of the week, has seven. He was scoreless until the 3:55 mark of the first half.
New Mexico shot just 8-for-24 from the field, but converted all 11 of its free throw attempts.
Napier, Tyler Olander and Enosch Wolf have two fouls apiece.
