A Basketball Photo Story
Hartford Civic Center December 20, 2006

A.J. Price led four Connecticut players in double figures Wednesday night at the Hartford Civic Center with 17 points as the 14th-ranked Connecticut Huskies put away Pepperdine in the second half to a 88-66 victory and remain undefeated. The Waves were on fire in the 1st half from behind the arc living and dying with the 3-point shot. Pepperdine went 8 of 15 on three pointers led by Tomas Pranciliauskas, who was 4 of 5 on 3s contributing to his 22 points. But the Waves couldn't get it done in next 20 minutes and were only 3-of-13 from 3-point range in the second half. UConn controlled the paint for the entire game. Pepperdine was outrebounding 48-28 and was totally dominated inside by Connecticut's height advantage. Far from looking like the 3-11 record that Pepperdine holds, the Waves were relentless in their attack.
Freshman center Hasheem Thabeet hit all seven of his shots, part of his 15 point, 7 rebound effort and sophomore Jeff Adrien made all six of his shots. Adrien finished with 14 points and seven rebounds.
Some notes on the game:
This was Coach Jim Calhouns's 743rd victory (495 at UConn and 248 at Northeastern).

The foul line was no help to Pepperdine as they accumulated 24 fouls to UConn's 14. UConn's shot 67% from the stripe.
UConn led by only 4 at the half, 40-36.
The final score was Connecticut 88 Pepperdine 66.
