UConn keeps rolling along — the men's team, that is.

The Huskies took charge in the second half with Rodney Purvis finishing with 19 points — 15 in the final 20 minutes — in a 74-67 win over Colorado in the NCAA Tournament.

While the women's team is No. 1, unbeaten and heavily favored to win a fourth straight national title, the Huskies made a dramatic run through the Big East to get into the men's field and now move into the second round after their latest win.

UConn (25-10) plays the winner of Thursday night's Austin Peay-Kansas game.
