NEWARK, N.J. (AP) -Jeremy Hazell scored 25 points and Seton Hall held off a late Louisville rally to post an 80-77 victory on Thursday night, handing the Cardinals their third straight loss.
The losing streak is the longest for coach Rick Pitino and Louisville (12-7, 3-3 Big East) since the 2005-06 season. It also prevented the Cardinals from getting their 1,600 win in school history yet again.
Jordan Theodore added 17 points and Jeff Robinson 12 as the Pirates (11-6, 2-4) won for only the second time in seven games.
Edgar Sosa had 15 points to lead Louisville, but he also had a late layup attempt blocked with about 40 seconds to play and the Cardinals down 75-72. Mike Marra came off the bench to add 10 points.
