    HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) -- Jerome Dyson scored 23 points as Connecticut beat Quinnipiac 82-49 Sunday, the Huskies' 62nd consecutive win over other teams from the state.

    Stanley Robinson had 15 for the Huskies (7-2) and Jeff Adrien added his fourth double-double of the season, scoring 12 points and grabbing 14 rebounds.

    The game was Quinnipiac coach Tom Moore's first against the Huskies after spending the past 13 seasons as a UConn assistant coach.

    Casey Cosgrove hit five 3-pointers and led Quinnipiac (4-5) with 15. DeMario Anderson added 10.

    Connecticut led 46-24 at the half, then went on a 16-4 run after intermission to put the game out of reach. Quinnipiac hit just 19 of 68 shots, and was just 5-of-25 from 3-point range.

    The Bobcats (4-5) scored first, but missed their next nine shots and UConn jumped to a 9-2 early lead.

    After a pair of 3-pointers from Casey Cosgrove tied the game at 10, UConn responded with a 13-0 run sparked by a pressing defense.

    The Huskies went on a 19-3 run late in the first half, capped by three consecutive dunks, including an ally-oop from Dyson to 7-foot-3 Hasheem Thabeet and a tomahawk by Dyson off a feed from Wiggins.

    Thabeet had four of Connecticut's nine blocked shots.

    Quinnipiac has never beaten UConn in nine tries. UConn's last loss to an in-state foe came on Dec. 29, 1986 when Hartford beat the Huskies 49-48 in Calhoun's first season.

    Moore is one of seven former Calhoun assistants who now has a Division I head coaching job.

    During his time with Calhoun, the Huskies won both their national championships, eight Big East regular season titles and five conference tournament titles.

    About 3,500 fans braved a winter storm to attend the game.
