UConn men’s basketball graced Hartford for the second time this season, leaving the XL Center with a huge win over Mississippi Valley State, 87-53. Freshman point guard Stephon Castle sat out the game with a knee injury, resulting in Solo Ball’s first career start.

Donovan Clingan got going early and often as well, scoring nine in the first half with 17 on the game, hitting 7-of-8 shots from the field, while Alex Karaban powered through foul trouble to post 14 points and grab five boards.
