The Connecticut Huskies men's basketball team looks to end 2011 in style when the Huskies host St. John's on Saturday at noon at the XL Center (SNY).

The Huskies have not lost since a shocking defeat to Central Florida on Nov. 25, rattling off six straight wins. The most recent victory came on Wednesday, when UConn began Big East play by prevailing 60-57 against South Florida. Jeremy Lamb hit eight out of 11 shots and scored 16 of his 23 points in the second half to help UConn avoid an upset.

St. John's has struggled at times due to an inexperienced roster, but the Red Storm have won three straight and started conference play with a dominant 91-67 victory against Providence. The Red Storm are led by Moe Harkless (15.7 points and 8.5 rebounds) and D'Angelo Harrison (15.1 points).
