HARTFORD, Conn. - Tyrese Martin had 15 points and 11 rebounds, and the Huskies shook off a slow start during an 87-63 victory over Binghamton.

Martin also had four assists, three steals and a blocked shot. He isn't crazy about going to the beach, anyway.

Adama Sanogo scored 12 points for the Huskies (4-0). Jordan Hawkins had 11, and Andre Jackson finished with nine points and eight rebounds.

Tyler Bertram led Binghamton (1-3) with 15 points. Ogheneyole Akuwovo scored 12.

UConn entered the game shooting 50.5% from the floor, but it missed 13 of its first 14 shots against Binghamton. Still, the Huskies trailed only 7-4 despite that poor offensive start.

Jackson's dunk off the 12th miss finally got the Huskies going, sparking a 9-0 run.

Binghamton's zone defense appeared to slow the Huskies down and keep the game relatively close.

After Binghamton took that early three-point lead, UConn scored 19 of the game's next 21 points.
