Soon after that, Edwin picked up his fourth foul and headed to the bench. The Aggies then made a mini-run and cut the lead to 52-44 with 12:14 left when Louisme converted on a four-point play, then nailed three free throws.

Cosby then hit two free throws and had a layup to give the Pirates a 59-46 lead with 9 minutes left.

Bruce Beckford banked in a shot from 14 feet to bring the Aggies to within 64-57 with 4:30 left, but Edwin responded with a long 3-pointer from the right corner, giving Seton Hall a 67-57 lead.
