Tulsa overcame slow start, trailing UConn by double figures in the first half, to pick up a 60-51 comeback victory over the Huskies on Thursday night at home.

The Golden Hurricane have won back-to-back games, and is over .500 in the American Athletic Conference standings. Frank Haith's most impressive win since November comes a day after his former school, Missouri, announced that an NCAA investigation found the university had committed five violations while he was in charge.

On Wednesday, Missouri announced a self-imposed postseason ban for this year, a loss of scholarship for 2017-18, recruiting restrictions and that all 23 wins from the 2013-14 season had been vacated.

Following Tulsa's win over UConn, Haith offered no further comment on the situation, according to Kelly Hines and Eric Bailey of the Tulsa World.

Haith chose to stick to the statement his issued the previous day.

“I appreciate the thoroughness of the NCAA during this process. I echo the sentiments of Missouri (coach) Kim Anderson in expressing disappointment that the actions of a few individuals have put the Tiger basketball program in this situation,” Haith said in his statement on Wednesday.

Haith left Missouri for Tulsa in April 2014, days after the athletic department received a notice of inquiry from the NCAA.

Tulsa is currently 11-5 (3-2 AAC) on the season. Missouri is 8-8, a year removed from a last-place finish in the SEC.
