Wichita State 89, Connecticut 86

HARTFORD, Conn. - No. 23 Wichita State blew a nine-point lead in the final minute of regulation, but came back to beat UConn 89-86 in two overtimes.

Jaime Echenique led four Wichita State players in double figures with 19 points before fouling out. Dexter Dennis and Erik Stevenson each scored 16 for the Shockers (15-1, 3-0 American Athletic Conference), who have won nine straight games.

Christian Vital scored 25 points for UConn (10-6, 1-3).

Wichita State seemed to have the game in hand, leading 69-60 with just over a minute left after a pair of free throws from Stevenson.

But the Huskies' pressing defense forced several turnovers including a shot-clock violation that gave the Huskies the ball down 69-66 with just over 10 seconds left.

Sidney Wilson's 3-pointer from the left baseline tied the game at 69, and he blocked Dennis' shot to force overtime.

A free throw from UConn's Josh Carlton sent the game into a second overtime.

Tyson Etienne opened the second extra period with a three-point play and Wichita State never gave the lead back.

UConn had a chance to tie it, but Morris Udeze drew a charge on Alterique Gilbert and Vital missed a 3-pointer with 2 seconds left.
