UConn beats USF 69-43 in first round of AAC tourney

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) Daniel Hamilton picked up his award as the American Athletic Conference rookie of the year Thursday afternoon, then lifted UConn to a first-round victory in the conference tournament.

UConn's star freshman scored 20 points, hit six of his eight shots and was 4 of 5 from 3-point range as the defending national champions routed South Florida 69-43 to keep their NCAA tournament hopes alive.

Rodney Purvis added 13 points and Ryan Boatright had 12 for the Huskies (18-13), who likely need to win the conference championship to earn an NCAA bid.
