LOS ANGELES -- After losing the first two games of the season at home, UConn was in danger of dropping its third straight.But a late rally ignited the Huskies to their first win of the season.Terry Larrier scored 14 points, including the go-ahead basket, and UConn held on to beat Loyola Marymount 65-62 on Thursday night.We were scrambling a bit at the end and we were running on an empty tank, Larrier said. At the end of the game we were trying to stop them from getting open-look 3s and its definitely nice to get that first win.Although the Huskies (1-2) trailed much of the second half, Larriers basket with 2:22 to play gave UConn a 63-62 lead. Jalen Adams, a sophomore guard, added two free throws with 20 seconds left to give UConn a cushion.Brandon Browns 3-point attempt at the buzzer would have forced overtime for the Lions (1-2), but his shot hit off the rim and the Huskies escaped with their first win of the season.It was a grind it out game, UConn coach Kevin Ollie said. Its good to get on the victory trail. We did not finish a lot of shots. We missed a lot of layups and we need to improve our transition game. We had too many turnovers and we have to fix that. But our guys believed in themselves, trusted each other and didnt stop playing.Kelvin Amayo -- a transfer from Iona who was granted a sixth year waiver following knee surgery -- led LMU with 18 points. Amayo made 5 of 12 shots and 8 of 11 free throws. He also pulled down six rebounds for the Lions. Buay Tuach scored 12 points and Brown added 10 points for LMU.Amida Brimah scored 9 points and grabbed 10 rebounds for UConn.We started out strong in the first half but finished the half sloppy, Brimah said. At halftime we made adjustments and when we took the court in the second half we had confidence we were going to win. The Huskies started the season ranked 18th but fell out of the polls after a pair of setbacks against Wagner and Northeastern.Both teams showed offensive spurts in the opening half but neither team maintained them.Alterique Gilbert led the Huskies with 10 points in the first half, but dislocated his left shoulder after colliding with a defender while chasing a loose ball late in the half. He remained down on the court for several minutes before the training staff led him off to the locker room. He did not return.We definitely had good defensive pressure as a team, Vital said. This was a must win for our team. Were a young team and we faced adversity.Ollie said Gilbert reinjured the shoulder he previously hurt and will be examined when the team gets to Hawaii on Friday.BIG PICTUREUConn: Thursday was the third game of a hectic beginning to the 2016-17 season, which the Huskies will play seven games in 20 days and also take a 10,200-mile road trip during that span.LMU: The Lions coach, former NBA coach Mike Dunlap, figures to improve LMUs 14-17 record from a year ago.

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -- North Carolina wants a division title. North Carolina State simply wants a bowl invitation.When these neighborhood rivals play Friday, the only thing for certain is that itll be a tough day for the losers -- whose pursuit of their biggest remaining goal will be denied by the team they dislike the most.Id say its a great rivalry, UNC coach Larry Fedora said. Its unique because your fans interact year round -- theyre always around each other. They work together. Im sure that some of them are friends.Probably not on gameday, though.Tar Heels cornerback Des Lawrence says theres a bit more chirping between his team and the Wolfpack, and theres extra talk. That amps things up.So do the stakes.The Tar Heels (8-3, 5-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) enter the final week of the regular season still in the hunt for a Coastal Division title and a repeat berth in the ACC championship game, but they need to beat N.C. State and get some help from Virginia, which faces Virginia Tech the following day.The situation is a bit more dire for the Wolfpack (5-6, 2-5), whose season was marked by close losses to a pair of highly ranked teams -- Clemson and Florida State -- and also befuddling losses to East Carolina and Boston College, two teams with a combined record of 8-14. A win over North Carolina will make them bowl eligible, while a loss will keep them home for the second time in coach Dave Doerens four seasons.Theres been a lot of opportunities that we havent capitalized on, but what hasnt happened is, no one here has backed down, no one here has turned on each other, no one here has gotten negative, Doeren said. I just want our fans to know, we know you want betterr results, and so do we, but were never going to quit fighting and believing in what were doing.dddddddddddd---Some other things to know about the N.C. State-North Carolina rivalry:LAST GAME: This will be the last game for 16 North Carolina seniors -- and maybe for QB Mitch Trubisky, too. The redshirt junior says he hasnt decided whether to enter the NFL Draft early after a season in which he has thrown for 3,188 yards and 25 touchdowns with an efficiency rating of 162.24 -- ranking in the top 15 nationally in each stat category. Ive waited three years just to basically play one year, and its gone by so fast, Trubisky said.ALL DAYES: N.C. State RB Matt Dayes will look for more yards against a North Carolina run defense that has been leaky. Dayes already as the 11th 1,000-yard season in program history -- the first since T.A. McClendon in 2002 -- and is third in the ACC in rushing with 1,015 yards. UNC ranks last in the ACC against the run, allowing more than 233 yards per game.SWITZER LAND: North Carolina WR Ryan Switzer is 189 yards shy of Hakeem Nicks 8-year-old school record for career yards receiving, having already set the school record with 226 receptions. Switzer averages 77.8 yards receiving, so its possible Nicks record could fall in the Tar Heels bowl game.KEY STAT: The team with more yards rushing has gone on to win 21 of the last 24 meetings in the series. The exceptions have come in 2004, 2009 and 2013. North Carolina rushed for 374 yards in last years victory in Raleigh.---More AP college football: www.collegefootball.ap.org Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap Adidas Hockey Jerseys Wholesale Nike Baseball Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys From China Wholesale Jerseys China Wholesale NFL Jerseys China Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap Nike NBA Jerseys Authentic Cheap NHL Jerseys Canada Cheap Nike MLB Jerseys Cheap Soccer Jerseys China NCAA Jerseys Cheap Nike NHL Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys Store Cheap Football Jerseys Store Wholesale Soccer Jerseys Jerseys NCAA China Jerseys NFL Cheap Cheap Nike NBA Jerseys ' ' '
