The final game was mostly all UConn. After the Aztecs got off to a quick start, the Huskies took full control in the first half and went up by as many as 16 points. The lead was 12 at halftime, and it looked like UConn was going to cruise through the second half. San Diego State made one final run to cut the margin to five with just over five minutes left, but Jordan Hawkins’ 3-pointer stemmed the tide. The Huskies closed the game on a 16-4 run.
Adama Sanogo earned Most Outstanding Player honors after a dominant tournament run. Sanogo had 17 points and 10 rebounds against San Diego State to cap things off.
