UPDATE: A 20-year-old Connecticut man who’d attended UConn’s loss to undefeated Duke at the Izod Center was struck and killed by a car last night while trying to cross eastbound Route 3 in East Rutherford, authorities said.

No charges were filed against the 35-year-old driver in the 10:35 p.m. incident following the NCAA college basketball game, police said. An investigation was continuing.

Another man, 19, also was struck nearby and later hospitalized with injuries that police said weren’t life-threatening.
