PARADISE ISLAND, Bahamas (AP) - Daniel Hamilton had 16 points, nine rebounds and nine assists, and No. 18 UConn beat Michigan 74-60 on Wednesday night in the opening round of the Battle 4 Atlantis.

The Huskies (4-0) dominated most of the second half, leading by as many as 19. The lead dissipated down the stretch, but they were able to get some clutch baskets in the final minutes.

Shonn Miller and Rodney Purvis each had 13 points for the Huskies.

The Wolverines (2-2) got as close as eight late, but couldn’t sting together enough offense. They also had few answers for Connecticut’s frontcourt.

Caris LeVert led Michigan with 21 points. The Wolverines shot 32 percent from the field.

Connecticut advances to play Syracuse in Thursday’s semifinals. The Wolverines will face Charlotte in the consolation bracket.
