HARTFORD, Conn. -- UConn didnt look pretty in beating Boston University, but after a rough start to the season the Huskies werent looking for style points.Freshman Christian Vital scored 13 points and UConn, down to just eight scholarship players because of injury, held off BU 51-49 on Wednesday night.Kentan Facey added eight points and seven rebounds for the Huskies (3-4), who picked up their first home win in three tries, despite shooting just 32 percent from the field.Eric Fanning led all scorers with 21 points for BU (4-3), which shot 31 percent and was just 3 of 19 from 3-point range.We just needed one stepping stone, and getting this win is hopefully going to lead us on to greater things, said UConn center Amida Brimah, who finished with nine points and three blocked shots.UConn led for more than 27 minutes, but never by more than eight points.A free throw by Jalen Adams made it 51-48 with three seconds left and UConn fouled guard Kyle Foreman in the backcourt with just under two seconds left to prevent the Terriers from attempting a 3-pointer. He missed his second free throw on purpose, but Facey was able to pull down the rebound.The teams combined to hit just 14 of the 54 shots taken in the first half and UConn led 21-17 going into the break.Rodney Purvis hit a shot from behind the arc that began a 9-3 second-half run that put UConn up 44-36, but the Huskies couldnt pull away.Fanning scored the next five points.His layup brought the Terriers to within three points at 46-43, by Tyler Scanlon missed a 3-pointer that would have tied the game.I dont care if we win by a point or 15, well take all the wins we can get, Facey said.BU hasnt beaten the Huskies since 1986. UConn leads the series 43-12.THE BIG PICTUREUConn: The Huskies will be short-handed the rest of the season. The team announced Tuesday that freshman point guard Alterique Gilbert will undergo surgery to repair a torn labrum in his left shoulder and will miss the rest of the season and freshman forward Mamadou Diarra will redshirt this season to undergo treatment for a painful knee condition known as patellofemoral syndrome. UConn already had lost starting swingman Terry Larrier, who tore the ACL his left knee in the Huskies loss to Oklahoma State in Hawaii on Nov. 21.We just have to try and get better, coach Kevin Ollie said. Weve got eight guys and were going to continue playing with those guys. Were not making any excuses. But I was very happy with the win and were finding ways to win.Boston University: BU showed it will struggle when it cant hit from behind the arc. The Terriers came into the game making an average of more than nine 3-pointers per game. They were shooting more than 26 3-pointers a game and were making almost 36 percent of those.I think sometimes we settle for the 3, when there are other things that we are capable of doing that were not doing, said BU coach Joe Jones. Getting the ball inside, driving the ball to the basket more often is some of the things that we are kind of missing in the diversity of how we play.While UConn dresses just eight scholarship players, the Terriers have had 11 players reach double figures this season. They have a streak of 628 games with at least one made 3-pointer.REBOUND TURNAROUNDBU Outrebounded the Huskies 26-16 in the first half. UConn turned that around, grabbing a 26-18 advantage after the break.FAST BROKENOllie wants the Huskies to be a running team. But UConn put up just two fast-break points on Wednesday, despite forcing 16 BU turnovers. Ollie said Adams, who will run the point in Gilberts absence, must do a better job.Jalen has to get the ball and command it, especially when we hold a team to 31 percent we have to get those long rebounds and push it up and down the court, he said.UP NEXTUConn: The Huskies travel to Madison Square Garden on Monday to face an old nemesis in No. 22 Syracuse before visiting Ohio State.BU: The Terriers visit North Carolina State on Saturday, before returning home to play Canisius.----More AP college basketball: www.collegebasketball.ap.org and https://twitter.com/AP-Top25.

And when it opened, every player was at his stall. Thats a sure sign that a team is in a slump and is searching for answers. "Its embarrassing to be at home and play the way we did," said defenceman Josh Gorges.Alex Corbisiero believes Eddie Jones has developed an element of arrogance in England that will see them swagger into their autumn program. South Africa open the Old Mutual Wealth Series when they visit Twickenham on Saturday, followed by Fiji, Argentina and Australia with a record-equalling 14 successive Test victories the prize at stake come December 3. England vs South Africa November 12, 2016, 2:00pm Live on Get Sky Sports Get a Sky Sports pass Since Jones took over in the wake of last years Wold Cup disaster, England have been crowned Grand Slam champions and posted an historic 3-0 series whitewash of the Wallabies. Corbisiero, who began a sabbatical from the game last year after winning 20 Red Rose caps and two for the British and Irish Lions, predicts a clean sweep of southern hemisphere scalps over the coming weekends.What Eddie has done well with England is honing their mindset and developing their ruthlessness. They have a bit of arrogance that they play with now, Corbisiero said. QUIZ: Englands last win over Springboks England were 23-21 winners over South Africa in 2006 but can you name the starting XV? I think that arrogance suits them because they go about their business, they say what they want in the press and dont worry about things, theyre head down and theyre all about performance. Thats come from the top.Im betting they will win all four games. You cant deny the form theyre in and what theyve achieved so far. They seem to be a team on an upward curve.The number of injuries they have are frustrating and theyre missing key guys like Maro Itoje and George Kruis, but theyre still in a good place. They still have good leaders on the field. They have great guys coming in. Im betting they will win all four games. You cant deny the form theyre in and what theyve achieved so far. Alex Corbisiero The form player in Englands ranks is Mako Vunipola, the rampaging Saracens prop who has been devastating with the ball in hand this season.Corbisiero, who filled the position with distinction until injury took its toll, has anointed the 25-year-old as woorld class following his transformation into the complete front row.dddddddddddd Mako Vunipola has praised the impact that Eddie Jones has had on the England squad since his appointment almost a year ago In my opinion, Mako is the best loosehead in the world and I will defend that view against anyone, said Corbisiero. Hes moving into a class of his own.His set piece has become so consistent and its ever-improving. Hes becoming a dominant scrummager.Everything he does around the field is incredible - his work-rate, his defence, his turnovers, his carrying, offloads, passes out the back.Hes never in the wrong position and is a great, intelligent rugby player who makes the right decisions who can make an impact while covering the basics that a prop needs to do. Vunipola ready for brutal Boks Mako Vunipola speaks to Sky Sports ahead of Saturdays Twickenham Test Corbisiero was speaking in promotion of the N-Pro head guard, which has been newly developed with the aim of helping reduce the impact of concussion.Its a medically designed device that absorbs and disperses blows to the head. It wont prevent concussion but it will help lessen the impact of the blows, he said.Concussion is never going to go away, its about managing the risk. Why wouldnt you wear it if it helps? Anything that can reduce head trauma, even by a small amount, is beneficial.Watch England v South Africa live on Sky Sports 1 HD on Saturday from 2pm.
