NEWARK, New Jersey – Al-Amir Dawes scored 23 points and Kadary Richmond scored 21 to lead Seton Hall over No. 7 Marquette 78-75 on Saturday for the Pirates’ third victory this season over ranked teams.

Seton Hall (10-5, 3-1 Big East) withstood a late scare from a well-rested Marquette, which had not played since defeating Creighton 72-67 on Dec. 30.

A 10-0 run pushed Seton Hall’s lead to 76-66 with 2:25 left. Dre Davis and Richmond each scored four points in the burst.

And then the Golden Eagles scored nine straight points to bring the score to 76-75, but they mishandled an incoming pass after a timeout and threw the ball out of bounds with four seconds left.

Oso Ighodaro led Marquette (11-4, 2-2) with 22 points. David Joplin scored 15.

Davis had 11 points and seven rebounds for the Pirates, who never trailed in the second half.
