STORRS, Conn. - Aaliyah Edwards had 23 points, leading six players who scored in double figures for ninth-ranked UConn in a 98-73 win over Seton Hall.

Caroline Ducharme and Nika Muhl each had 16 points and were a combined 8 of 11 from 3-point range. Lou Lopez Senechal had 14 points, Aubrey Griffin added 13 points and seven rebounds, and Dorka Juhasz had 10 points and 10 rebounds for UConn (9-2, 2-0 Big East).

Sidney Cooks had 18 points and Lauren Park-Lane finished with 17 for Seton Hall (9-4, 2-1), which had its seven-game winning streak snapped.

UConn coach Geno Auriemma missed his second straight game due to illness. Associate coach Chris Dailey ran the team and improved to 15-0 when filling in for Auriemma.

Muhl made her first three 3-pointers as UConn jumped out to the early 14-point lead. Then Ducharme started to find the range as she scored five points in less than a minute.

Seton Hall came into the game ranked 10th out of 11 Big East teams in 3-point shooting percentage, but fired up 16 3-pointers in the first half. Shailyn Pinkney and Jala Jordan hit back-to-back 3-pointers early in the second quarter to cut the lead to 14 points.

Ducharme, who was two of nine from 3-point range over her last four games, connected on a pair of 3s and UConn had a 53-31 lead at halftime.

UConn began to dominate inside after halftime, with 15 of the 19 shots in the third quarter inside the 3-point line to take a 38-point lead heading into the fourth quarter.

BIG PICTURE

UConn: The Huskies defeated Seton Hall for the 36th time in a row and improved to 56-10 in the series against the Pirates.
