CINCINNATI (AP) — Jaren Sina had a four-point play and a 3-pointer that helped Seton Hall pull away to a 68-60 victory on Saturday that ended Xavier's 13-game winning streak at home.

The Pirates (13-9, 4-5 Big East) blew open a tight game with a 14-5 spurt that featured nine points by Sina, who finished with 12 points. Fuquan Edwin led the Pirates with 18 points.

Xavier (15-6, 5-3) suffered its first loss at the Cintas Center this season, ending a 13-game winning streak at home. The Musketeers are 185-26 all-time in 14 seasons at the on-campus arena.
