How to Watch No. 18 Alabama Basketball vs. No. 20 Connecticut

Can you say bombs away?

While the No. 18 Alabama Crimson Tide may have had a statement game against Michigan State in the opening round of the Phil Knight Invitational in Portland, Ore., No. 20 Connecticut was shooting lights out to also advance and set up a top-20 matchup in Friday’s semifinals.

Specifically, senior guard Tristen Newton led the Huskies to a school-record 17 3-pointers as they blew past one of the local teams, Oregon, to an 83-59 victory.

In case you’re wondering, the NCAA Division I record for 3-point field goals by both teams in a single game is 44 (Troy, which made 28 vs. George Mason on Dec. 10, 1994), and the record for total attempts, from the same game, is 108 (74 by Troy).
