NEWARK, N.J. (AP) Freshman guard Jaren Sina scored 14 points and handed out eight assists and Eugene Teague scored 15 of his 16 points in the second half, powering Seton Hall's 92-70 victory over Eastern Washington on Sunday at the Prudential Center.

Brian Oliver also had 16 points for Seton Hall (8-4), which had six players score in double figures. The Pirates received 14 points from Fuquan Edwin, 11 from Brandon Mobley and 10 from Haralds Karlis.

Parker Kelly had 17 points and Tyler Harvey scored 16 for Eastern Washington (5-5) in the first-ever meeting between the schools.

Eastern Washington was hit with a double-technical foul with 4:50 left. After a review of the tape, the first was called on Drew Brandon for a push of Oliver and the second was called on Eagles head coach Jim Hayford. Oliver sank four consecutive free throws and then scored on a fast-break pass from Sina to give Seton Hall an 81-56 advantage.

The Pirates had opened a 69-52 lead with 9:39 left with a 10-3 run. Edwin's fast-break dunk and a 3-pointer by Mobley highlighted the run.

Seton Hall started the second half with an 11-5 burst that staked it to a 49-41 edge. Oliver and Mobley each scored two baskets in the spurt.

After Harvey interrupted with a 3-pointer for Eastern Washington, the Pirates reeled off eight straight with a free throw from Teague, two foul shots by Sina, a basket inside by Teague off a pass from Sina, and then a 3-pointer by Sina to make it 57-44 for the Hall with 13:06 to go.

Edwin, who had missed three games with an ankle injury, made an impact for Seton Hall after coming off the bench early in the first half. Edwin turned his sixth steal of the first half into a fast-break dunk with three seconds left. He had 10 points in helping Seton Hall take a 38-36 edge into the break.
