Gordon broke nose in win over Hoyas

STORRS, Conn. -- Connecticut point guard Ben Gordon is expected to
play against North Carolina (No. 11 ESPN/USA Today, No. 9 AP) on Saturday despite a broken nose.

Gerald Riley midway through the first half of top-ranked UConn's 94-70 victory over Georgetown on Wednesday.

Gordon sat out briefly and finished with 11 points in 35 minutes.

Gordon is averaging almost 19 points and leads the Huskies with 25 steals.
