SOUTH ORANGE, N.J. (AP) Seton Hall center Eugene Teague dominated play with 18 points and 11 rebounds until a hard foul ended his night early in the Pirates' 90-58 win over Lafayette on Friday.

Teague was wheeled off the court in a stretcher and whisked to the hospital with the Pirates leading by 30 with 14:42 remaining. The preliminary report from Seton Hall officials was that Teague suffered a head injury and that his neck appeared to be fine.

Seton Hall (9-4) got 16 points and 11 rebounds from Brandon Mobley, 14 points and three assists from Sterling Gibbs and 11 points and eight boards from Brian Oliver. Dan Trist, Michael Hoffman and Joe Ptasinski scored nine points each for Lafayette is (4-7).

Teague, a 6-9 senior, was in the air taking an off-balance shot when he was knocked on his back by Hoffman. Teague was flat on his back moaning, and was taken off the court with his neck stabilized after a delay of about 14 minutes. The crowd, quieted by the injury, gave Teague a standing ovation as he left the court.

Teague registered a double-double about three minutes into the second half when he had 18 points and 10 rebounds.

Seton Hall's 19-0 run in the first half ended the competitiveness of the game for all practical purposes. Fuquan Edwin started the streak when he converted a fast-break layup off a bounce pass from Stephane Manga.

Patrik Auda followed by sinking an offensive rebound and Manga then hit a baseline jumper and stole the ball to throw down a one-handed dunk. Gibbs drove the lane for two and Teague sank two foul shots before scoring a basket inside. Oliver then nailed a 3-pointer and Jaren Sina capped the run with a driving basket for a 32-7 lead with 6:02 left.

In the first half, Teague did not miss a shot, hitting all six of his attempts from the floor and both of his free throws. He concluded the first 20 minutes with 14 points and eight rebounds in 14 minutes as the Pirates took a 47-15 lead into the break.

Lafayette shots just 18.2 percent from the floor (6 of 33) in the first half compared to Seton Hall, which made 19 of 34 attempts (55.9 percent).
