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.

UConn plays at No. 21 Creighton on Dec. 28.
