Davis scores 22 to lead No. 11 Houston past UConn 84-45

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) Houston wasn't satisfied with its 14-point halftime lead against UConn. The 11th-ranked Cougars' goal is not to let up for 40 minutes, and it showed against the overmatched Huskies.

Houston clamped down on defense, causing UConn to miss 11 of 13 shots to open the second half, and the Cougars went on to rout the Huskies 84-45 in the quarterfinals of the American Athletic Conference Tournament on Friday.

It's the fourth time in school history that Houston (30-2) has reached 30 wins, and the first since the 1983-84 season.
