One of the more exciting men's college basketball games of this young season took place last night, as unranked Connecticut upset No. 2 Michigan State, 70-67, in the Maui Invitational.

One of the reasons it was so exciting, however, is the poor job offensively by both teams in closing out the game. With 5:00 remaining, UConn led 66-61. The Huskies managed only four more points the rest of the way, but that was enough to win, as the Spartans scored only six. In the following table, I've summarized each team's woes, based on this second-half play-by-play sheet.
