STORRS, Connecticut (Ticker) -- Jim Calhoun's current squad did not treat his old one very nicely.
Josh Boone collected 19 points and 14 rebounds as No. 6 Connecticut pulled away from Northeastern, 97-60, in a game delayed 25 minutes early in the first half due to a power outage.
Calhoun coached the visiting Huskies for 14 seasons, going 248-137, before joining Connecticut in 1986.
Connecticut (4-0) led throughout but held just a 46-36 advantage following a 3-pointer by Northeastern's Bennet Davis three minutes into the second half. The edge was 63-47 before UConn went on a 17-0 run, which ended on a basket by Charlie Villanueva with 6:10 remaining.
It was UConn's 88th consecutive victory over a non-Big East Conference team from New England.
Marcus Barnes scored 20 points to pace Northeastern (2-4).
UConn held an 8-3 edge when the power failed less than three minutes into the contest.
Villanueva scored 17 points and Denham Brown added 15 for UConn, which shot 43 percent (36-of-84) and limited Northeastern to just 27 percent (22-of-81). Boone shot 8-of-13 and Villanueva and Brown 7-of-13 apiece.
