Shabazz Napier had 22 points, nine assists and six steals and led a second-half comeback that carried Connecticut to a 78-67 victory over Seton Hall on Sunday.

Ryan Boatright added 20 points and Omar Calhoun had 10 points as the Huskies (16-6, 6-4 Big East) rallied from a seven-point deficit and handed Seton Hall (13-11, 2-9) its fifth straight loss and ninth in 10 games.

Aaron Cosby had a career-high 25 points to lead Seton Hall, while Fuquan Edwin, playing with a sprained ankle, added 19 points.

Napier scored 18 of his 22 points in the second half and finished 8 of 12 from the field while playing 39 minutes. He hit a free throw, a fast-break layup and a 3-pointer in a 9-0 run that gave Connecticut the lead for good.
