A 16-0 Seton Hall run sparked by junior swingman Fuquan Edwin erased a double-digit deficit and gave the Pirates a 35-34 halftime advantage over UConn.
Edwin, whose status for the game was in doubt due to a sprained ankle, scored the first 10 points of the Seton Hall run.
UConn was led by Omar Calhoun’s 10 points. Shabazz Napier, scoreless until the final few minutes, buried a jumper to silence the 16-0 spurt. He finished with four points.
