Owens, Sanni combine for 29 in West Virginia's rout of Seton Hall

SOUTH ORANGE, N.J. (AP) -- LaQuita Owens scored 10 points and Olayinka Sanni added 19 to help No. 12 West Virginia rout Seton Hall 70-42 on Sunday.

The Mountaineers (18-3, 7-1 Big East) scored the first nine points of the game and built the lead to 20 in the first half before Ebonie Williams hit a 60-footer for Seton Hall at the halftime buzzer.

The Pirates (13-7, 3-5) got no closer than 16 in the second half as West Virginia shot 56 percent from the field.

Williams had 10 points to lead Seton Hall, which is in the midst of a brutal part of its schedule. The Pirates visit Pittsburgh (No. 19 ESPN/USA Today, No. 14 AP) on Wednesday before hosting top-ranked Connecticut on Saturday.
