HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) Chasson Randle scored 22 points and Stanford handed No. 10 UConn its first loss of the season, 53-51 on Wednesday night.

Josh Huestis added 13 points and Dwight Powell had 10 points and 15 rebounds for Stanford (8-2), which overcame a 10-point halftime deficit in earning their first signature win of the season.

DeAndre Daniels had 15 points for UConn (9-1).

Randle's jump shot with 3 1/2 minutes left gave the Cardinal a 52-49 lead. The Huskies pulled within a point when Daniels tipped in a missed 3-point attempt by Niels Giffey.

But Shabazz Napier missed three shots in the final 40 seconds with a chance to put the Huskies ahead. He passed up an opportunity on UConn's final possession, passing the ball to Omar Calhoun, whose 3-pointer from the right wing bounced off the rim.
