ROSEMONT, Ill. (AP) - Shabazz Napier scored 28 points, Ryan Boatright and Omar Calhoun added 17 apiece, and Connecticut beat DePaul 81-69 on Saturday night.

The Huskies (19-7, 9-5 Big East) got all they could handle from 1 of the league's worst teams after squeezing by Cincinnati in overtime, but they still came away with their seventh win in nine games.

They trailed by three points at the break and were down one early in the second half when they scored 13 straight to take control and send the Blue Demons (11-16, 2-12) to their 11th loss in 12 games.

Napier, who scored 27 against Cincinnati, came up big again, hitting 5 of 7 3-pointers and keying the decisive rally.
