Adama Sanogo scored 26 points on 11-of-14 shooting as No. 14 UConn blew out DePaul 88-59 on Wednesday night in Hartford, Conn.
Four players scored between 10 and 12 points for UConn (23-7, 12-7 Big East) in the team's fourth consecutive win.
Tristen Newton led that group with 12 points and added six assists, while Alex Karaban and Andre Jackson Jr. had 11 points apiece and Donovan Clingan contributed 10.
Jackson also logged eight rebounds and nine assists.
The Huskies led 51-19 at halftime after shooting 21 of 37 (56.8 percent) from the field.
Senior Nick Ongenda had a career-high-tying 17 points and six rebounds to lead DePaul (9-21, 3-16), which lost its 11th straight game. Javan Johnson added 10 points.
Sanogo's layup opened the scoring. After Umoja Gibson tied the score with a foul-line jumper, the Huskies went on a 27-0 run to put the game out of reach within the first 10 minutes.
Jackson hit the first of four Huskies 3-pointers during the spurt. Newton followed with back-to-back treys, with the second coming off a Sanogo offensive rebound.
The UConn lead expanded to double digits as Karaban and Sanogo completed three-point plays.
After Karaban stepped into a 3-pointer to make it 26-2, Ongenda missed two free throws that would have halted the run. Philmon Gebrewhit finally ended DePaul's scoreless streak at the line before Ongenda hit a layup with 10:08 left before halftime for the Blue Demons' second field goal.
The Huskies had more success with Sanogo inside as he scored six points during an 11-0 run.
Sanogo dropped in a layup just before the halftime buzzer.
Eral Penn's three-point play and a Jalen Terry 3-pointer bookended an 8-2 DePaul run with 12:57 to go, but Joey Calcaterra answered back with back-to-back treys to bring the Huskies' lead back to 30.
Johnson and Terry hit treys as part of two 5-0 DePaul runs in the final seven minutes, but the Blue Demons never got closer than 26 points after halftime.
