In the team's first contest since coach Jim Calhoun took an indefinite medical leave of absence, the Huskies routed Seton Hall 69-46 on Saturday to end a four-game losing streak. Under the coaching of normal assistant George Blaney, Ryan Boatright led UConn with 19 points, Jeremy Lamb added 17 and Andre Drummond swatted seven blocks to match his seven points.

Louisville has righted itself after a troublesome midseason stretch to win four straight, including a victory against Rutgers on Saturday. Freshman Chane Benahan connected on his first 10 shots, scoring 23 points and 11 rebounds to pace the Cardinals' 78-66 win. Kyle Kuric added 14 points, Russ Smith had 12 and Peyton Siva finished with 11.

UConn is looking to improve on its 2-4 road record.
