HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ Jim Calhoun was not in an analytical mood after Connecticut's romp over Yale.

``We didn't gain or lose anything by this game. I don't think it impedes our progress, I don't think it enhances our progress,'' Calhoun said after the ninth-ranked Huskies beat the Elis 93-66.

``We did gain one thing: We're 6-1 instead of 5-1. I'm not mad at my kids, I'm not upset at my kids, I just don't think we took anything away from this game.''

UConn never trailed, blasting to a 10-0 lead to open the contest before Yale (3-4) was able to take a shot.

Ray Allen and Doron Sheffer each had 3-point baskets in that run, a trend which was to continue all night.

Allen finished with 31 points and Sheffer had a career-high 27.

``I like to have Doron and Ray play well, but I'm sure they'll do that against another team as well,'' said Calhoun.

Sheffer agreed there is room for improvement.

``We didn't play our game,'' he said. ``We should take advantage of games like this to get a lot of people involved and we didn't. We got open shots from the outside and I'm happy we made them. That helped us win the game.''

Allen said spreading the wealth is essential.

``We have to make sure all the guys contribute,'' said Allen. ``Sometimes you have to pass up a shot just to get someone else open.''

UConn led 20-11 when Allen scored seven of the next 11 points to open the lead to 31-11. By halftime, it was 45-24.

Yale scored the first five points of the second half and trailed 48-32 when Allen and Sheffer went on a 17-point binge to turn the game into a romp. The Elis cut the lead to 21 points later on, but could get no closer.

``They are one heck of a basketball team,'' said Yale coach Dick Kuchen. ``They work hard on the defensive end and their press gets them a lot of points.

``When you lose by 20 points you don't get excited about it,'' Kuchen said, ``but I think our kids played hard. They came to compete and I'm proud of them.''

In addition to Allen, who had 10 rebounds to go with his 31 points, and Sheffer, who had four assists, Travis Knight was in double figures for UConn with 11 points and he also had eight rebounds and three blocked shots.

Bernie Colson was the only Bulldog in double figures with 17.
