UConn Men's Postgame: Highlights 00:02:21
The UConn men's basketball team defeated New Hampshire, 85-66, and Sterling Gibbs led the way with 21 points.

STORRS, Conn. (AP) UConn turned to its perimeter game on Tuesday with its big men in early foul trouble and New Hampshire playing nothing but zone defense.

Sterling Gibbs responded by scoring 21 points and Rodney Purvis added 20 to lead the 19th-ranked Huskies to an 85-66 win over the Wildcats.

The two guards were a combined 10 of 19 from behind the arc, each getting five of the Huskies 13 3-point baskets.

Connecticut's newest stars were pleasantly surprised with their first experience at Gampel Pavilion. However, the No. 19 Huskies' impressive play wasn't much of a stunner.

Sterling Gibbs and Shonn Miller will try to lead UConn to another strong home showing Tuesday night in the 117th meeting with former Yankee Conference rival New Hampshire (SNY, 7 p.m.).

After missing out on the NCAA Tournament last season, coach Kevin Ollie looked to get the Huskies back to their 2014 championship form by bringing in Gibbs and Miller, and the graduate transfers made an immediate impact Friday in a 100-56 home win over Maine.
