Triche's career night carries SU past Seton Hall

  • Text size: + -

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - Brandon Triche scored a career-high 29 points to go with six rebounds and five assists, leading No. 6 Syracuse to a tougher-than-expected 76-65 victory over reeling Seton Hall on Saturday night.

C.J. Fair added 19 points and 11 rebounds, and Michael Carter-Williams had 14 points and nine boards as the Orange (21-4, 9-3) rebounded from a loss to Connecticut earlier this week and remained tied with Marquette and Georgetown for first-place in the Big East Conference.

Fuquan Edwin had 21 points and Eugene Teague added 14 points and nine rebounds for Seton Hall (13-13, 2-11) in its seventh straight loss and 11th in 12 games.

The banged-up Pirates put a little scare into Syracuse, opening a nine-point lead in the first half before wilting under the Orange's talent and depth.
