HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - Shabazz Napier scored a career-high 34 points and No. 24 UConn beat No. 20 Memphis 86-81 in overtime Saturday to sweep the season series from the Tigers.

Ryan Boatright added 21 points for UConn (20-5, 8-4 American Athletic Conference), including eight in overtime and added six assists.

Joe Jackson had 24 points to lead the Tigers (19-6, 8-4). Geron Johnson added 15 points and eight rebounds before fouling out and Chris Crawford chipped had 12.

The game was tied at 69 at the end of regulation and UConn opened the extra period on a 7-2 run. But Memphis cut it to 76-74 after a Michael Dixon hit a 3-pointer.

Napier responded with one of his five 3-pointers and the Huskies held on.

The UConn senior had a shot to win the game in regulation, but his fallaway jumper rolled around the rim and out.
