NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — Fuquan Edwin scored 16 points and Brandon Mobley added 14, leading Seton Hall to a 55-47 victory over South Florida on Wednesday night.

The victory snapped a four-game losing streak for the Pirates (13-6, 2-4 Big East). The Bulls (10-8, 1-5) lost for the fifth time in six games.

Mobley, who returned to action after missing one game with a separated shoulder, scored eight of his points in the second half to hold off any possible South Florida run. The Bulls twice got to within six in the second half.

South Florida was paced by Jawanza Poland, who scored 13, and Toarlyn Fitzpatrick, who had 10 points.

The Pirates never trailed, scoring the first five points and pushing their lead to double digits twice, the latest being 29-19 with 43 seconds left in the half.

Poland’s long 3-pointer at the buzzer sliced the lead to 29-22 at the half.
