The win is the first for the top-seeded Pirates (21-12) in the event since 1956.

Stony Brook, the two-time regular-season champions of the American East Conference, didn’t make it easy. Bryan Dougher had a 3-pointer bounce off the rim with about :02 to go, and Tommy Brenton had a rebound follow roll off the rim at the buzzer.

Dallas Joyner had 14 points and nine rebounds for the Seawolves (22-10). Marcus Rouse added 13, and Dougher had 12.

In the second round, Seton Hall will play UMass, which beat Mississippi State 101-96 in double overtime.
