Seton Hall ends DC skid, tops Georgetown 67-57

Associated Press  |  Last updated January 18, 2014
Fuquan Edwin scored 19 of his 24 points in the second half, and Seton Hall rallied from a 10-point, second-half deficit Saturday and broke a three-game losing streak with a 67-57 win over Georgetown. Back in the starting lineup after battling a knee injury, Edwin went 4 for 4 from 3-point range after halftime for the Pirates (11-7, 2-3 Big East), who had been 0-4 on the road against their conference rivals since an overtime victory on Jan. 29, 2003. Seton Hall hadn't won in regulation at Georgetown since Jan. 8, 2000. Edwin also had five steals to set the school record with 263. He passed Dan Callandrillo, who had 260 from 1978-82. D'Vauntes Smith-Rivera scored 14 points to lead the Hoyas (11-6, 3-3), who didn't score a field goal over the final 9:44 and blew a double-digit, second-half lead for the second straight game, having lost to Xavier after leading by 17 on Wednesday. Georgetown also lost at home for the first time this season after winning its first eight at the Verizon Center. Edwin has missed four games due to injury this season, and he came off the bench in Seton Hall's previous game, a one-point loss at Marquette. Against Georgetown, he led the decisive 15-3 run, highlighted by a sequence in which he hit a 3-pointer that he celebrated by running backward with both arms in the air, then made a steal at the other end of the floor. Edwin fouled out with 1:51 to play and his team leading by 11, and his teammates had to hang on. Sterling Gibbs made only 4 of 8 free throws over the final 2:50, allowing the Hoyas to cut the deficit to seven with several chances to make it the score closer. Eugene Teague returned for the Pirates after missing four games with a concussion, but committed two offensive fouls in the first 2:18 and headed for the bench. He finished with 10 points in 23 minutes. Georgetown remains without Jabril Trawick and Joshua Smith, both regulars in the starting lineup until recently. Trawick missed his third game with a broken jaw, and Smith sat out for the fourth consecutive game for academic reasons. Nate Lubick continues to play with a mask after breaking his nose last weekend against Butler. Both teams came out sluggish, looking more like football teams content to trade punts rather than score. Both started 3 for 12 from the field, and Seton Hall had five turnovers in the first five minutes. The Hoyas closed out the first half with a 10-0 run, including 3-pointers from Markel Starks and Reggie Cameron, to take a 35-26 lead at the break. Georgetown took the first double-digit lead of the game on Cameron's 3-pointer early in the second half, but turnovers began hurting the Hoyas as Seton Hall pulled off a 20-9 run and took a 48-47 lead on Edwin's three-point play with 10:06 remaining. Aaron Bowen then made a layup to put Georgetown back ahead, but that was the last Hoyas field goal. Teague made a bucket to give Seton Hall the lead for good, and Edwin followed with a 3-pointer as the Pirates pulled away. --- Follow Joseph White on Twitter: http://twitter.com/JGWhiteAP
