NCAA basketball

11 a.m. PT at Connecticut

Seton Hall +18½ at UConn (151)

The 15-1 Huskies, ranked fourth in the Associated Press Top 25, are just 1-2 against the spread in lines of 18 points or higher. Connecticut is riding a four-game win streak, but the last three victories were by 12, 9 and 6 in Big East play. With a big home game coming up against No. 23 Villanova on Wednesday, this is spot where the Huskies could lack some focus.

It would be a huge upset is the visiting Pirates were to come away with the win, but a good performance is definitely possible. Seton Hall has dropped four straight, but the last two losses were by 9 at Notre Dame and 4 to Villanova. Plus, the Hall defeated USC earlier this season and was respectable in a 14-point loss to Memphis. Connecticut should win, but the 18½ looks to be a little high. SETON HALL.
