Seton Hall Outlasts South Florida in Big East Tournament

Fuquan Edwin scored 17 points, including the final six in regulation, and Seton Hall rallied past South Florida 46-42 in overtime Tuesday night in the unsightly opener of a last-of-its-kind Big East tournament.

Gene Teague added 14 points and 10 rebounds for the 12th-seeded Pirates (15-17), who face No. 19 Syracuse in the second round on Wednesday afternoon.

Even after playing an extra 5 minutes, the teams barely eclipsed the lowest-scoring game in Big East tournament history, Georgetown’s 46-41 first-round victory over Villanova in 2003.

Zach LeDay had 13 points and 15 rebounds to lead No. 13 seed South Florida (12-19), which shot 24.2 percent and squandered an eight-point cushion down the stretch in a game between offensively challenged squads that both went 3-15 in conference play this season.
