ATLANTA — Rodney Stuckey scored 29 points, Greg Monroe and Andre Drummond each had a double-double and the Detroit Pistons snapped a 10-game skid in Atlanta with a 102-95 victory over the Hawks on Tuesday night.
Atlanta has five games left in the regular season and a 1 1/2-game advantage over New York for the eighth and final Eastern Conference playoff spot.
Paul Millsap had 24 points and 12 rebounds for Atlanta, which had won three of four.
Monroe finished with 21 points and 13 rebounds and Drummond had 19 points and 17 rebounds for the Pistons, who were eliminated from playoff contention when the Hawks won Sunday at Indiana.
Detroit has won two straight after dropping five of six.
Atlanta trailed by three when Drummond blocked Millsap’s jumper in the lane and tipped in Kyle Singler’s missed fast-break layup to put the Pistons up 96-91 with 1:36 remaining.
The Pistons were up by 13 twice in the second, the latter coming on Peyton Siva’s 3-pointer at the 8:47 mark, but Atlanta cut the lead to four on Kyle Korver’s 3 in the final minute.

NASHVILLE, Tenn.  — Geno Auriemma and Connecticut stand alone in women’s college basketball, and they reached the top in unprecedented fashion.
The Huskies routed Notre Dame 79-58 in the first championship game featuring undefeated teams, winning their record ninth national title. Auriemma broke a tie with Pat Summitt and Tennessee for most all-time, doing it in her backyard.
Breanna Stewart, who was The Associated Press Player of the Year, scored 21 points to lead the Huskies (40-0) while Stefanie Dolson added 17 points, 16 rebounds and seven assists. Auriemma took out his senior center with a minute left and the game well in hand with the pair embracing in a long hug.
“We beat a great, great team,” Auriemma said. “Notre Dame is a great team. For them to have the season they had and lose their starting center and to do what they did, I can’t say enough about their players, coaching staff and it took everything we have. I knew if we played great we’d have a chance to win.”

STORRS, Conn. (AP) — Jubilant fans celebrating UConn's Monday night national basketball championship win smashed a window in an engineering building, broke street lights and overturned furniture inside the school's student union.

Campus police had made 30 arrests by 1:30 a.m. Tuesday, while state police had made others and more were expected, said University of Connecticut spokesman Tom Breen.

"A lot of it was alcohol-related," Breen said. "There was breech of peace, destruction of property, and we had a fireworks charge."

Most of the property damage was minor, he said.

No serious injuries had been reported.

"By far, most of our students have conducted themselves safely and responsibly," UConn Police Chief Barbara O'Connor said.

DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — Court records show a University of Dayton basketball player has been charged with domestic violence and assault.

The records show 20-year-old Devon Scott will be arraigned on the misdemeanor counts in Dayton Municipal Court on Monday. A court official says no attorney is listed for Scott. No home telephone listing was immediately available.

Court records show the alleged assault occurred April 1 at Scott's Dayton residence.

A university statement says its public safety department presented the charges. The statement says federal privacy laws prevent the university from releasing additional information.

The university says Scott remains in school but has been removed from team activities pending resolution of the charges.

The 6-foot-9 sophomore from Columbus played in 35 of 37 games this season. He averaged 3.4 points and 2.7 rebounds.

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Coaches and players left them. Others told them to go away.

The guys who stuck around at UConn ended up with the last laugh and a pretty good prize to go with it: The national title.

Shabazz Napier turned in another all-court masterpiece Monday night to lift the Huskies to a 60-54 win over Kentucky's freshmen and bring home a championship hardly anyone saw coming.

"You're looking at the hungry Huskies," Napier told the crowd and TV audience as confetti rained down. "Ladies and gentlemen, this is what happens when you banned us."

The senior guard had 22 points, six rebounds and three assists, and his partner in defensive lock-down, Ryan Boatright, finished with 14 points.
