The Tigers, who trailed 48-32 less than four minutes into the second half, used a full-court press to turn the game around. The Pirates committed 17 turnovers the rest of the game.

Coleman gave LSU (5-0) the lead for good on a field goal with 2:15 left. Seton Hall committed turnovers on its next three possessions, while the Tigers made five foul shots — one by Coleman and two each by Andre Stringer and Charles Carmouche — to lead 70-64 with 19 seconds left.

Coleman was LSU’s top scorer with 18 points, and Johnny O’Bryant had a double-double with 13 points and 11 rebounds.

Brandon Mobley came off the bench and led the Pirates (5-2) with a career-high 17 points. Eugene Teague added 14.
