UConn men's basketball host the Monmouth Hawks today at 4 p.m., looking to get their sixth win of the season.
On Wednesday, the Huskies beat Columbia 77-73 in overtime. Senior guard Christian Vital scored 29 points in the win.
"Our defense was shaky at first, but we really buckled down in the second half," Vital said, via Associated Press. "That's what I love about this team. No matter the adversity that we hit, I feel our best chances are going to win the game."
Monmouth are looking to get their season off the ground, starting 3-4.
