Four Connecticut players scored double-digits, led by Ryan Boatright's 26, as the Huskies (9-2) defeated the Fordham Rams (2-9), 88-73, at the XL Center in Hartford, Conn.

The first half was all Connecticut, as the Huskies raced out to a 57-28 halftime lead. Fordham showed signs of life in the second half, putting together a 19-0 run early in the frame to cut the lead to 13, but within minutes, UConn had pushed the lead back up to 20 and breezed to the finish.

Guard Branden Frazier scored 26 for Fordham, including five three-pointers, while forward Chris Gaston added 11. The Rams shot 46 percent and outrebounded UConn by 15, but were done in by 21 turnovers.

In addition to Boatright's 26, Shabazz Napier scored 19, followed by Omar Calhoun (17) and DeAndre Daniels (10). The Huskies shot 51 percent from the field.

Connecticut will now be off for Christmas. They next take the court on Dec. 29 at the XL Center, where they will play the Washington Huskies out of the Pac-12.
