    STORRS, Connecticut (Ticker) -- No. 20 Connecticut hopes to continue its hot shooting when it faces St. John's in a Big East Conference meeting Saturday.

    The Huskies shot nearly 74 percent (14-of-19) from the floor in the second half and made a season-high 30 free throws in a 81-76 victory over Villanova on Wednesday.

    Rashad Anderson scored 21 points and Rudy Gay added 17 for Connecticut, which was victorious in Jim Calhoun's 1,000th game as a college coach.

    Marcus Williams averages 7.7 assists, which leads the Big East and ranks second in the nation. He had recorded 25 assists in his last two games, including a school-record 16 against Notre Dame on Sunday.

    The Red Storm broke a three-game losing streak Wednesday by defeating Rutgers, 53-52, despite shooting a season-low 28 percent (17-of-64).

    Lamont Hamilton scored 16 points, including the game-winning basket with 5.5 seconds remaining, and grabbed 16 rebounds. Daryll Hill added 14 points for St. John's, which had a 51-33 rebounding advantage.

    The Red Storm lead the series with Connecticut, 32-21, but the Huskies have won 31 of their last 35 games at Gampel Pavilion.
