STORRS, Conn. Matt Bonner Jersey . -- Wagner won a regular-season conference title and a game in the NIT last spring. The Seahawks say none of that compares to beating No. 18 UConn.Mike Aaman and Romone Saunders?each scored 15 points to lead the Seahawks to a 67-58 victory over the Huskies in the season opener for both teams Friday night.This is one of the biggest wins in history, said Aaman, a 6-foot-8 senior who had nine rebounds. The win in the NIT was big, but this was against a ranked team to start out our season, so it was a very big win for us.Corey Henson added 10 points for Wagner, which beat a ranked team for just the second time in program history (Pittsburgh in 2011). Wagner also handed the Huskies their first loss in an opening game on campus. UConn came in 27-0 in such contests.Transfer Terry Larrier scored 19 points and freshman Alterique Gilbert added 14 to lead the Huskies.UConn trailed by three points at halftime and went more than five minutes without a basket to open the second half before Jalen Adams tip-in made it 41-37.Wagner scored the next eight, pushing the lead to 49-37 on a 3-pointer by Saunders.But Saunders landed awkwardly after making a pass under the basket a short time later, and he had to be helped to the bench.He didnt return, and UConn turned up the defensive pressure.The Huskies went on a 12-0 run to tie the game, holding Wagner without a point for almost seven minutes.But Wagner responded, outscoring the Huskies 18-9 from there. Hensons 3-pointer with just more than three minutes to play started a 7-0 run that put the game out of reach.That was a monumental play that just gave us confidence to finish, he said.Wagner, which doesnt have a player taller than 6-8, outrebounded UConn 37-33. Wagners defense held the Huskies to just five second-half field goals.I just think it was a lack of intensity, lack of effort on our part, said Larrier, who was playing his first game since transferring from VCU before last season. We gave those guys confidence early on, and a team like that, theyre dangerous.BIG PICTUREWagner: The Seahawks never looked rattled or intimidated by UConn. Wagner has eight returning players from a team that won the Northeast Conference regular-season title and upset St. Bonaventure in the first round of the NIT.UConn: The Huskies shot just 35.7 percent from the field, 26.7 percent in the second half. UConn allowed nine 3-pointers and had trouble on the defensive switches, leaving the experienced Seahawks with open jumpers.POLL IMPLICATIONSUConn likely will fall out of the AP Top 25. The Huskies wont have a chance to impress voters until they face Oklahoma State in Hawaii on Nov. 21.NERVOUS PURVIS?UConn senior guard Rodney Purvis had just five points and no assists. He and sophomore Jalen Adams (nine points, five assists) were a combined 6-of-22 from the field. Weve got to get better, UConn coach Kevin Ollie said. We cant have our two top guards going 6-for-22, cause I count on those guys. Both of them cant have a bad night.EARLY SIGNINGSUConn signed a guard and two forwards to national letters of intent Thursday. Makai Ashton-Langford is a highly regarded 6-2 point guard from Worcester, Massachusetts. He played AAU basketball with Jalen Adams. Tyler Polley is the 6-8 son of former NFL linebacker Tommy Polley, and 6-9 Josh Carlton is a 230-pound inside presence who plays at DeMatha Catholic in Maryland.UP NEXTWagner: The Seahawks head to Massachusetts for a game Monday against UMass-Lowell. Their home opener comes Nov. 19 against Fairfield.UConn: The Huskies have another home game Monday against Northeastern before heading west. The Huskies will play in Ollies hometown of Los Angeles on Nov. 17 before heading to Hawaii and the Maui Jim Maui Invitational. David Robinson Spurs Jersey . Neymar curled home a free kick from just outside the area to put the 2014 World Cup host ahead in the 44th minute. Three minutes after the break, a simple through pass from Paulinho freed Oscar and the Chelsea star rounded goalkeeper Jung Sung-ryong to extend Brazils lead. David Lee Spurs Jersey . Batiste, who briefly signed with the Eskimos in 2006, has spent time with several NFL teams including the Pittsburgh Steelers and Washington Redskins. http:///...e-spurs-jersey-c-10/ . Uniteds eighth defeat of a wretched campaign means Liverpool, which currently occupies the fourth and final Champions League place, could go nine points clear of its fierce rival by beating West Bromwich Albion on Sunday. Charlie Adam scored both of Stokes goals at Britannia Stadium either side of Robin van Persies equalizer, with a miserable day for seventh-place United capped by first-half injuries to centre halves Jonny Evans and Phil Jones that forced them off.
