PARADISE ISLAND, Bahamas (AP) - Kyle Wiltjer scored 17 points, Eric McClellan added 15 and Gonzaga held off No. 18 Connecticut 73-70 Friday in the third-place game at the Battle 4 Atlantis.
    
UConn's Rodney Purvis had a chance to tie the game but missed a 3-pointer at the buzzer.
    
Domantas Sabonis added 12 points for the Zags (4-1). Gonzaga was 10 for 24 from the 3-point line.
    
For the second straight game the Zags played a crucial stretch of the second half without Sabonis. He picked his fourth foul with just over eight minutes remaining. That allowed the Huskies (4-2) to erase what had been a 21-point deficit early in the second half.
    
Shonn Miller led UConn with 19 points. Daniel Hamilton added 14 points and seven rebounds.
