Seton Hall 63, Stony Brook 61:
Seniors Jordan Theodore and Herb Pope combined for 41 points and top-seeded Seton Hall held off a last-second upset bid for a thrilling victory over Stony Brook in the opening round of the NIT.

The Pirates (21-12) will host UMass in second-round play.

Rallying from a six-point deficit in the final two minutes, the visiting Seawolves (22-10) had a shot to win in the closing seconds, but Bryan Dougher missed a long 3-point attempt. Tommy Brenton grabbed the offensive rebound, but his putback attempt just before the final horn also rolled out.
