MEXICO CITY (AP) - The New England Patriots had a business approach to their trip to Denver and Mexico City. They head home with two wins after beating the Oakland Raiders 33-8 at Azteca Stadium. The Patriots have won six games in a row and appear to be peaking at the right time of the season once again.

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Jalen Hudson scored 26 points, including a dunk midway through the second half that put No. 8 Florida ahead for good during a 70-63 victory over plucky New Hampshire. The Gators had been averaging a nation-leading 112 points per game in their first two wins. But they shot just 32 percent, and New Hampshire took advantage to stay close.

UNCASVILLE, Conn. (AP) - Jerome Robinson scored a season-high 25 points to lead Boston College over La Salle 82-61 in the consolation game of the Hall of Fame Tip-Off Tournament. Nik Popovic had 18 points for the Eagles (4-1).

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Jae'Sean Tate made all 10 of his shots from the floor and had a career-high 24 points to lead Ohio State to a 80-55 win against Northeastern. Tate was also 4 for 6 from the free-throw line.

NASSAU, Bahamas (AP) - Anthony Lamb scored 26 points, Trae Bell-Haynes 19 including the game-winner with three seconds left and Vermont overcame a 17-point gap to hand Northern Kentucky its first loss of the season 66-64 in the championship of the Islands of the Bahamas Showcase. Northern Kentucky was 4-0 and coming off its first appearance in the NCAA Tournament last season and looked to be on its way to a fifth win, breaking away from a 35-33 halftime lead to 59-46 with 9:02 remaining before Vermont rallied.

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - Kia Nurse had 21 points to lead six UConn players in double figures as the top-ranked Huskies routed No. 15 Maryland 97-72. The Huskies improved to 3-0, with every win coming by at least 25 points against Top 25 competition. Gabby Williams added an unorthodox triple-double for the Huskies. The senior had 15 points, 11 rebounds and 10 turnovers. Maryland's Kaila Charles led all scorers. She had 29 points and 12 rebounds.

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Kristine Anigwe had 28 points and a career-high 25 rebounds and No. 20 California survived Brown' school-record onslaught of 3-pointers to defeat the Brown Bears 89-79. The Golden Bears (1-1) dominated statistically everywhere but shooting, where Shayna Mehta poured in a career-high 33 points, knocking down a Brown record nine 3-pointers on 14 attempts.

MONTEGO BAY, Jamaica (AP) - John Carroll scored 22 points and grabbed eight rebounds, J.R. Lynch scored 18 on four 3-pointers and Hartford's early lead survived a strong finish by Miami (Ohio) 68-58 in the finale of the Jamaica Classic tournament.
