Ryan Boatright had 19 points and Jeremy Lamb scored 17 for Connecticut, which played without coach Jim Calhoun to beat Seton Hall 69-46 on Saturday.
Lamb added eight rebounds and Boatright had five assists and four steals for the Huskies (15-7, 5-5 Big East), who ended a four-game losing streak. Andre Drummond scored just seven points but had seven blocks.
Jordan Theodore and Aaron Cosby each had 10 points to lead Seton Hall, which was leading scorer and rebounder Herb Pope. The Pirates (15-8, 4-7) have lost six straight.
Calhoun is taking an indefinite medical leave because of spinal stenosis, a condition that causes him severe pain and hampers his mobility.
