SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) Last season, Connecticut was mostly unproven and unnoticed until the Huskies peaked late and won the NCAA title.

Through two games at the Puerto Rico Tip-Off, No. 17 UConn is playing like a team focused on defending its title.

Ryan Boatright had 20 points, Rodney Purvis added 19 and Connecticut rallied from five points down in the second half to defeat Dayton 75-64 in the semifinals of the Puerto Rico Tip-Off on Friday.
