PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) Donovan Clingan had 15 points and 10 rebounds to power No. 20 UConn to a 71-53 win over Iowa State in the championship game of the Phil Knight Invitational tournament on Sunday night.

Tristen Newton scored 13 points for the Huskies (8-0), who went 20 for 25 at the free-throw line. Alex Karaban and Andre Jackson, Jr. each had 10 points.

Osun Osunniyi led Iowa State (5-1) with 14 points. Tamin Lipsey had 12 points and Jaren Holmes finished with 11.

The Huskies had more offensive rebounds (20) than the Cyclones had total rebounds (19), and capitalized on that disparity with 20 second-chance points.

Clingan, who was named tournament MVP, scored eight points to help UConn to a 38-28 lead at he break.

Iowa State closed to 53-48 on Holmes' 3-pointer midway through the second half. But Karaban made a 3 and a dunk, and Newton's jumper made it 60-48 with 7:13 remaining.

BIG PICTURE

UConn: The Huskies couldn't have asked for a better showing in Portland, winning all three of their games.

Iowa State: The Cyclones picked up nice wins over Villanova and top-ranked North Carolina in the earlier rounds but ended with their first loss of the season.
