NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — Sandro Mamukelashvili scored a career-high 23 points on 8-of-11 shooting with four 3-pointers and eight rebounds and Seton Hall never trailed in beating Sacred Heart 90-76 on Wednesday night for the Pirates’ fourth-straight win.
Myles Powell scored 14 points and Michael Nzei and Shavar Reynolds added 10 apiece for the Pirates (8-3), who turned 21 Sacred Heart turnovers into 24 points.

Sacred Heart made it 55-42 on E.J. Anosike’s putback early in the second half, but a 9-0 run pushed the lead to 22 and the final score is as close as the Pioneers would get.
