ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) _ Ray Allen scored 29 points and Connecticut's defense kept every Hoosier but Brian Evans out of double figures in an 86-52 victory Saturday in the Great Alaska Shootout.

Evans was Indiana's only bright spot, leading all scorers with 30 points. Todd Lindeman added nine, but only one other Hoosier, Charlie Miller, was able to manage a basket until Robbie Eggers hit a layup with nine minutes left.

By then, Doron Sheffer had reeled off nine straight points in 45 seconds to blow the game open, 57-36. Connecticut led by as many as 30 before coach Jim Calhoun benched Allen and Sheffer.

Sheffer ended the game with 20 points, including five 3-pointers, and freshman Rashamel Jones had 11 for the Huskies (2-1), who captured third place in the tournament. Indiana (1-2) fell to fifth.

Allen scored a layup off the opening tip-off and the Huskies never looked back despite Evans scoring Indiana's first eight points and 16 by halftime. Only two other Hoosiers scored in the first half.

Twice in the first half the Hoosiers were unable to get off a shot before the 35-second clock expired. And the Hoosiers repeatedly had trouble getting the ball across midcourt in their allotted 10 seconds.

The Huskies outrebounded the Hoosiers 43-32. Connecticut's Travis Knight had a game-high 11. Haris Mujezinovic led Indiana with eight.

Allen scored 13 in the first half, seven on free throws as he was fouled on his frequent drives to the basket.

Connecticut suffered would could have been a setback with 55 seconds left in the half when Kirk King threw an elbow and then went after Lindeman. The 6-foot-8, 230-pound junior was ejected. He had four points and three rebounds before getting tossed.
