HARTFORD, Conn. - Freshman Jerome Dyson scored 20 points as No. 21 Connecticut routed Central Arkansas 88-59 in the opening round of the Hispanic College Fund Classic.

The Huskies (2-0) used a smothering man-to-man defense and speedy transition game to run away from the Bears (1-2), a team playing its first season in Division I.

Jeff Adrien had 14 points and 11 rebounds for Connecticut. Stanley Robinson added 13 points, and guard A.J. Price had 12 points and eight assists.

UConn jumped to a quick 10-2 lead after Central Arkansas (1-2) opened the game with an ally-oop dunk from Frederick Campbell to Durrell Nevels.

Campbell led the Bears with 15 points, one shy of his career high.

The Huskies used their pressure defense to go on a 12-0 run midway through the half, opening the lead to 26-9. They led 44-28 at the break.

Dyson shot 3-of-5 from three-point range. The 6-foot-3 guard also had several spectacular dunks off steals that got the crowd at the Hartford Civic Center into the game.

The victory gives UConn a 21-game home winning streak, dating back to a February 13, 2005 loss to North Carolina. The team has won 12 consecutive games at the Hartford Civic Center.
