  • PISCATAWAY, N.J. (AP) -- Andre Barrett scored 15 of his 17 points in the second half and Seton Hall closed the game with a 10-0 run to take a 62-52 victory over Rutgers Tuesday night.

    The Pirates (14-9, 8-4) won their seventh straight and swept the season series from Rutgers (11-14, 3-10), leaving the Scarlet Knights in last place in the Big East West Division with three games remaining.

    The Pirates' six-game conference winning streak is their longest since winning a school-record eight straight in 1992-93.

    Barrett, who added six rebounds and six assists, missed 10 of his first 11 shots before making his final three field goal attempts and going 4-for-4 from the foul line in the final 46.3 seconds.

    A foul shot from Rutgers' Herve Lamizana made it 52-52 with 3:14 left in the game. That marked the third tie, along with eight lead changes, in the second half.

    Kelly Whitney started the decisive run with two foul shots with 3:00 left. Andre Sweet hit a jumper, and Barrett found Whitney for a reverse layup to make it 58-52 with 1:14 remaining. Barrett closed it by making four straight free throws.

    Ricky Shields had 11 points for Rutgers, and the Scarlet Knights played much of the second half without point guard Mike Sherrod and leading scorer Jerome Coleman, who were in foul trouble.

    Whitney finished with 16 points and 10 rebounds while John Allen had 10 points.

    The Pirates held a 45-31 rebounding advantage over Rutgers, which got 11 points from Ricky Shields.

    Rutgers shot 31.6 percent for the game and was 3-for-18 from 3-point range. Seton Hall shot 32 in the second and 41.8 percent overall, and committed 17 turnovers.

    The Pirates led 30-25 at the half.
