SOUTH ORANGE, N.J. (AP) Paige Bueckers had 23 points, nine rebounds, seven assists, and five steals to lead No. 2 UConn past Seton Hall 74-49 in the teams' Big East opener on Friday night.

"She was all over the court. She's smart. She knows where the ball's going all the time," UConn coach Geno Auriemma said. "She's got a bunch of things going for her. She's so smart offensively that when she's on defense, she knows exactly where they're trying to go with the ball. I've always said that the best offensive players can also be the best defensive players if they feel like it. Because once you understand the offense, you know what the other team is trying to do and you're always ready for it."

The Huskies (4-1) bounced back in their first game since losing on Nov. 22 to No. 1 South Carolina at the Battle 4 Atlantis in the Bahamas.
