PISCATAWAY, N.J. (AP) -- Eugene Harvey scored eight of his 26 points in overtime and Seton Hall ended the game with a 13-0 run in defeating Rutgers 84-71 Wednesday night.

Rutgers (10-12, 2-7), which had beaten two straight ranked teams, got 23 from Mike Coburn and 16 from Chandler.

The Scarlet Knights took their first lead of the game when Coburn scored to make it 69-67 to start overtime. Rutgers' Anthony Farmer hit two foul shots to tie it at 71-71 but the Knights would not score again.
