LAHAINA, Hawaii -- Denham Brown's game-winning shot Wednesday night with 1.1 seconds to play was typical of this year's Maui Invitational. Something spectacular seemed to happen every night. And in a tournament filled with Final Four-quality teams, every game seemed to be decided by whoever had the ball last.
Well, with six seconds to play in the title game, Connecticut had the ball and it took Brown going the length of the floor and hitting a spinning hook shot over tourney MVP Adam Morrison and J.P. Batista to lift the third-ranked Huskies to a 65-63 victory.
Sure, Denham Brown's shot was spectacular. But UConn's defense paved the way to its Maui Invitational championship.
