  • NEWARK – Jim Calhoun had just coached his team to a victory over Seton Hall Saturday at The Prudential Center, the No. 1-ranked Huskies 13th straight win, and now he was standing against a wall in the arena talking about what comes next.

    What comes next for UConn (24-1, 12-1 Big East) is tonight’s epic showdown with No. 4 Pittsburgh (23-2, 10-2) at the XL Center in Hartford that serves as ESPN’s “Big Monday” broadcast.

    McDonald’s All-American Lance Stephenson broke the New York State scoring record Sunday night as Lincoln won the Brooklyn Borough championship with an 81-61 victory over Thomas Jefferson at Long Island University.

    When the 6-foot-5 Stephenson scored a layup off the opening tap, it gave him 2,786 points for his career, breaking the old record set by former Lincoln star Sebastian Telfair, now with the Minnesota Timberwolves. Stephenson tallied 24 points and 11 rebounds and now has 2,808 career points. He averaged 40 points in the three Borough games, including a 50-point outburst against FDR.

    “That means a lot,” Stephenson told FiveBoroSports.com. “I wasn’t trying to break the record. I just played hard. I felt I earned it.”

    Maryland-bound senior power forward James Padgett had 18 and 16 and St. Francis-bound point guard Darwin “Buddha” Ellis tallied 18 points. Shaquille Stokes added 14 points and eight assists.
