The UConn Huskies will appear in the finals of the Paradise Jam in the Virgin Islands Monday after a thriller Sunday night, with Monday Night Football and other NCAA hoops action taking the spot of Boston's pro teams.
College basketball: New Mexico Lobos vs. No. 23 UConn Huskies, 10 p.m., CBS College Sports: Kevin Ollie's squad had a hectic path to the finals of the Paradise Jam, but so did their opponents: UConn needed some late buckets to force overtime against the Quinnipiac Bobcats Sunday, but Quinnipiac returned the favor with a pair of late triples to force double overtime. There, they pulled ahead for the 89-83 win. New Mexico, on the other hand, trailed by five with less than 20 seconds but Kendall Williams hit a three, stole the inbounds pass, and eventually Tony Snell another three with 1.8 seconds remaining to stun George Mason. Both teams will look to stay undefeated, with New Mexico having a pair of comeback wins against perennial mid-major stars Davidson and now George Mason to their name.
