Purvis spurs UConn comeback for 74-67 win over Colorado

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) Shooting extra free throws after practice is about as unglamorous as basketball gets.

The work has been worth it for UConn.

Rodney Purvis, Daniel Hamilton, a stifling defense and 96 percent shooting from the line carried Connecticut back from an 11-point first-half deficit and helped the Huskies beat Colorado 74-67 in the first round Thursday, keeping Kevin Ollie unbeaten as a head coach in the NCAA Tournament.
