Need to Know: Rodney Purvis' jumper from the corner with 46 seconds left gave UConn the lead and Ryan Boatright was 4 of 4 down the stretch as UConn survived a horrendous shooting performance to keep its NCAA dreams alive. UConn shot 36-4 percent of the game and needed to hit its last five shots to knock off Tulsa. Boatright scored 21 points while Purvis added 11. UConn held Tulsa to 29.6 percent shooting and survived getting crushed on the glass 40-28. UConn now will face SMU on Sunday and can get that automatic bid to the NCAAs.
