HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) Nate Sikma scored 15 points to lead Hartford to a 56-46 victory over Marist Saturday.

Lamar Jackson is incredible, and he finds new ways to add to his MVP resume each week.
That continued against the Bills, one of the stingiest defenses in the NFL. It didn't matter for Jackson, who showed off his elusiveness on the ground early and often.
Let's track all the ways Jackson made our jaws drop this week.
- Jackson breaks all of the ankles on one run
- He passes 1,000 yards on the ground on the same move, which will show again because it's unbelievable
- Even when he gets tackled for a loss, he can wow with a stiff arm
- It doesn't always look pretty, but nobody's better when a play breaks down
Lamar Jackson is better at football than most people are at anything.
He proved it once more early in the first quarter against the Bills, breaking two more ankles en route to gaining a first down on the ground.
Bills linebacker Matt Milano, who, it needs to be mentioned, is paid a lot of money to tackle people, completely whiffs on Jackson here. He tackles the air while falling to the ground, and will forever have to watch his attempted tackle on highlight reels.
Lamar Jackson can't stop putting NFL defenders to shame, and we can't stop laughing watching them.
