LAHAINA, Hawaii -- ??? Jalen Adams drove fearlessly to the rim, dished to open teammates, soared in over taller players to snatch rebounds.The sophomore guard nearly had a triple-double and the Huskies needed nearly every bit of it to hold off a feisty upset-maker.Adams had 25 points, 11 assists and nine rebounds, helping Connecticut survive for a 93-82 victory over Division II Chaminade Tuesday in the Maui Invitational.He did a great job leading our team, UConn coach Kevin Ollie said. He did an unbelievable job finding his teammates, scoring and then when we needed a rebound, he got it.UConn (2-3) had all kinds of trouble with Oklahoma States pressing defense to open the Maui Invitational, turning it over 18 times -- all on Cowboys steals -- in a 98-90 loss.On Day 2, the Huskies had a hard time shaking the deep-shooting Silverswords (2-2), who have had a penchant for knocking off big-name opponents.UConn shot 61 percent and had a 20-point advantage in the paint and 13 more rebounds, yet werent able to pull away from Chaminade until the closing minutes.Rodney Purvis had 23 points and hit three 3-pointers in the final 4 minutes after going hard to the floor.Vance Jackson added 16 for UConn, which was without forward Terry Larrier after he injured his left knee against Oklahoma State in the tournament opener.Everybody was just hungry and wanted to get back and prove we can win and compete in this tournament, said Adams, who made 12 of 17 shots. We definitely didnt come down here to lose.Chaminade has a certain mystique around it in Maui, thanks to a long list of upset victories.The Silverswords were blown out by No. 4 North Carolina in their Maui opener, but used their perimeter shooting to stretch the Huskies on defense and keep them from pulling away.Rohndell Goodwin had 20 points, Sam Daly and Kiran Shastri had 19 each for Chaminade, which made 14 of 32 from 3-point range.We were feeling it for a while today, Shastri said.The Silverswords hit 6 of 10 shots to lead 18-13 and, unlike the night, pushed back when a bigger team tried to lean on them.Chaminade trailed by seven, but tied the game at 39-all late in the first half on a layup by Austin Pope and Goodwins short jumper after a turnover on the inbound play.The Silverswords hit 9 of 17 from 3-point range in the first half and were tied with the Huskies at 45-all.Adams carried UConn in the opening 20 minutes with 15 points, eight assists and six rebounds.The Silverswords continued to go right at the Huskies in the second half, dropping in long-range 3-pointers and driving fearlessly to the rim to stay within 61-60 midway through.UConn finally started to gain some separation as the Silverswords started missing shots they had been making all day.The Huskies stretched their lead to 80-71 on Purvis corner 3-pointer with 5? minutes left and added three more to close the Silverswords out.Those late 3-pointers were the difference in the game, Chaminade coach Eric Bovaird said.BIG PICTUREUConn: The Huskies survived the big upset, yet not being able to shake a Division II opponent is not a good sign. Adams has been stellar in Maui, but the Huskies will need more than just him for the fifth-place game and beyond.Chaminade: The Silverswords have had their share of upsets in the Maui Invitational and nearly pulled off another. Keeping up with a big-time program like UConn should do nothing but build confidence for the Silverswords the rest of the season.UP NEXTUConn: Faces No. 13 Oregon in the fifth-place game.Chaminade: Plays in the seventh-place game against Tennessee.

Cheap Football Bears Jerseys . LOUIS -- The New Orleans Saints looked like a team playing out the string. Darren Lockyer says the NRL was right to ban Corey Norman for the remainder of the season, but Phil Gould has warned not all players have got the message on their off field behaviour.Parramatta playmaker Norman was banned for eight game son Thursday, ending his NRL season, and fined $20,000 for a number of off field indiscretions including his drug possession conviction.I am happy with the punishment, NRL great Lockyer told Channel Nine.The precedent was set with Mitchell Pearce and I think it is not such a bad thing for Corey.He has obviously got a few issues, he needs time away from footy to get those in order.He can go away and do that and come back next year.I am happy with what the NRL have done.ddddddddddddRoosters halfback Pearce was suspended for eight games at the start of the season over his infamous Australia Day behaviour.But as the NRL continues to come down hard on poor player behaviour, Penrith supremo Phil Gould, also speaking on Channel Nine, warned not all players were taking note.These player have to understand they are not invisible, Gould said.They have responsibilities. There are still a few running the gauntlet who think they wont get caught, but they will sooner or later.
