Recap


Rutgers 57, Seton Hall 55: Eli Carter scored 14 points and host Rutgers held off a late rally by its in-state rival to snap a six-game losing streak.

Myles Mack scored 10 points - all in the first half - for the Scarlet Knights (13-10, 4-8 Big East), who ended their skid despite going without a field goal for the final 9 1/2 minutes.

Fuquan Edwin scored 18 points, including a late 3-pointer with 3.2 seconds left that cut the deficit to one, but it wasn't enough to prevent Seton Hall (13-12, 2-10) from tumbling to its sixth straight defeat and 10th loss in 11 games.

The Pirates pulled within 37-34 on Eugene Teague's basket with 14:34 to play, but Carter and Dane Miller hit 3-pointers in a 10-0 spurt as Rutgers built the lead to 47-34 with 9:30 left.

The Scarlet Knights led by a dozen with 4:24 left, but the Pirates inched back and pulled within 55-52 on Kyle Smyth's 3-pointer with 26 seconds left before Edwin's lunging 3-pointer made it a one-point game.
