HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) Wichita State gave up a nine-point point lead in just over a minute at the end of regulation and had two key players foul out during two overtimes.
But the Shockers found a way to get their ninth consecutive win, and eighth straight on the road dating to last season, as they held off UConn 89-86 on Sunday.
"I thought we were tremendously tough and ratty, pursuing balls and getting stops," coach Gregg Marshall said. "Both teams just fought like crazy and left it all out there."
Jaime Echenique led four Wichita State players in double figures with 19 points before fouling out. Erik Stevenson, who also picked up his fifth foul in OT, and Dexter Dennis each scored 16 for the Shockers (15-1, 3-0 American Athletic Conference). Jamarius Burton added 13 points.
