PISCATAWAY, N.J. (AP) Eli Carter scored 11 of his 14 points in the second half and Rutgers snapped a six-game losing streak by holding off a late charge to edge New Jersey-rival Seton Hall 57-55 on Tuesday night.

The Scarlet Knights (13-10, 4-8 Big East) blocked a season-high 11 shots and saw Dane Miller became the 39th player in school history to score 1,000 points in sending Seton Hall (13-12, 2-10) to its sixth straight loss.

Miller scored the final five points in a 10-0 second-half spurt that allowed the Scarlet Knights to open a 13-point lead, but the Pirates closed the game with a 15-5 run that saw Fuquan Edwin miss a desperation, three-quarter court length 3-pointer at the buzzer.
