to an 81-71 victory over Providence on Sunday.
      Jeff Robinson added 20 points as the Pirates (10-12, 4-6 Big
East) had five players in double figures in a second straight
impressive performance. They crushed No. 9 Syracuse 90-68 on Jan.
25.
      Jordan Theodore added 11 points and Jeremy Hazell and Keon
Lawrence had 10 each for the Pirates.
      Marshon Brooks scored 15 of his 20 points in the second half for
Providence (13-9, 2-7), which was coming off consecutive upsets of
No. 8 Villanova and then-No. 19 Louisville. Vincent Council also
had 20 points for the Friars, who are winless in six road games.
      Seton Hall opened the game with a 25-11 run, led by 18 at the
half and never allowed Providence to get within eight points the
rest of the way.
