SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) — Jeremy Hazell led a long-range Seton Hall barrage with 28 points and the Pirates handed Syracuse its third straight loss.
Syracuse (18-3, 5-3 Big East) had lost two straight to top 10 conference foes, on the road at Pittsburgh a week ago and on Saturday at home to Villanova.
Seton Hall (9-12, 3-6), which had lost three straight, torched Syracuse’s zone defense for seven 3s in the first half, four by Hazell, and built a 13-point halftime lead.
Seton Hall, the worst shooting team in the Big East, finished 10 of 17 from beyond the arc and shot 54.1 percent for the game while holding Syracuse to 5 of 21 from long range and a season-low 36.1 percent from the field.
Jordan Theodore had 19 points on 7-of-10 shooting for the Pirates.
Kris Joseph led Syracuse with 17 points.
