STORRS, Conn. - Freshman Donovan Clingan had a career-high 21 points and 11 rebounds to lead No. 5 UConn over Long Island University 114-61.

It was Clingan's second double-double of the season, and one of five players who scored in double digits. Sophomore Jordan Hawkins had a team-high 22 points and was 6 of 9 on 3-pointers; freshman Alex Karaban turned in a career-high 19 points; Adama Sanogo added 16 points and Naheim Alleyne added 11.

The last time the Huskies (11-0) scored 100 points in regulation was when they opened the 2020 season with a 102-75 win against Central Connecticut State. It's also the most points UConn has scored since beating Morehead State 129-61 during the 2005-06 season

Jacob Johnson scored 19 points for the Sharks (1-8) and R.J. Greene added 17.

Clingan had 17 points and nine rebounds at the break as UConn dominated the opening half, 62-27. The freshman eclipsed his career high of 15 points with a putback dunk right before the buzzer.

The Huskies shot 62.5% from the field to LIU's 37%, and were 7 of 16 on 3-pointers.

After the Sharks tied it 5-5 at 17:52 of the half, UConn reeled off a 20-2 run.

BIG PICTURE

LIU: The Sharks dropped their seventh straight contest and are now 0-3 against Big East schools this season.

UConn: Finished its nonconference schedule undefeated for the sixth time in program history. The Huskies are off to their best overall start since opening 11-0 in 2008-09.
