Rutgers vs Seton Hall

Rutgers 56, Seton Hall 51


NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - Myles Mack scored 15 points and hit two go-ahead free throws with 4:20 to play as Rutgers posted a 56-51 victory over Seton Hall Friday night, sweeping the season series from its New Jersey rival for the first time since 2000-01.

Jerome Seagears added 10 points and Mike Poole hit a clutch jumper with 1:41 to play and made a late steal to seal the game for the Scarlet Knights (14-15, 5-13 Big East), who snapped a five-game losing streak.

Aaron Cosby had 13 points to lead Seton Hall (14-17, 3-15) in the regular-season finale for both teams. Brian Oliver added 12 points and Eugene Teague had 11 points and eight rebounds before fouling out with 2:36 to play.

The game had no effect on the opening round of the conference tournament on Tuesday. No. 12 seed Seton Hall will play No. 13 South Florida in the opening game at 7 p.m. at Madison Square Garden and No. 11 Rutgers will play No. 14 DePaul in the nightcap.

As usual though, this was another close one between the long-time rivals who might not play as much in the future with Rutgers headed to the Big 10 Conference and Seton Hall in the new Big East.

The final five-point margin marked the 17th time in 19 games that the final result was decided by six points or fewer or in overtime.

Teague gave Seton Hall its final lead, scoring on a power move inside with 5:26 to go for a 47-46 lead.

Mack put Rutgers back in front, hitting both ends of a 1-and-1 after Kyle Smyth was called for a touch foul guarding him near the top of the 3-point circle.

The next two minutes featured missed chances on both sides before Dane Miller hit two free throws for a 50-47 lead on the play that Teague fouled out.

Oliver turned the ball over under the basket for Seton Hall with 2:11 to play and Poole hit his first basket of the game on a 15-foot jumper with 1:41 to go to push the lead to 52-47.

A layup by Fuquan Edwin, who finished with 10 points and eight rebounds, got the Pirates to within 52-49 with 1:15 to go. A shot clock violation gave Seton Hall a chance to tie the game but Edwin slipped on the wing and the Scarlet Knights forced a tie-up and got the ball on the alternating possession with 21.5 seconds left.

Malick Kone hit a free throw seconds later and Poole got the offensive rebound after the second miss to ice the game.

The second half was played in spurts with Rutgers opening with a 15-3 spurt to take a 38-28 lead and the Pirates responding with 12-2 spurt that featured two 3-pointers apiece by Cosby and Oliver.

Mack and Seagears both finished 4 of 10 from the field as neither team shot better than 40 percent from the field.
