STORRS, Conn. - Freshman Paige Bueckers scored 23 points and No. 2 UConn overcame an early 11-point deficit to beat Seton Hall 70-49.

Olivia Nelson-Ododa added 15 points and 13 rebounds for the Huskies (15-1, 12-0 Big East), who were coming off Monday's overtime win over top-ranked South Carolina.

Mya Jackson and former UConn player Andra Espinoza-Hunter each had 15 points for Seton Hall (9-4, 7-3), which had won its last five games and six of its last seven.

The Pirates led 21-10 early in the second quarter and held a 27-26 advantage at halftime, forcing 13 UConn turnovers over the first 20 minutes.

But the Huskies used a 12-0 third-quarter run to take a 47-37 lead, before the Pirates cut that back to 49-43 on a 3-pointer by Espinoza-Hunter.

Bueckers scored the first five points of the fourth quarter and the Huskies outscored Seton Hall 21-6 in the final frame.

Desiree Elmore had 10 of her 12 points in the first-quarter for Seton Hall.

Evina Westbrook had 12 points and Aaliyah Edwards added 11 for the Huskies, who outscored the Pirates 40-18 in the paint.
