NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - Desi Rodriguez scored a career-high 33 points and grabbed eight rebounds to lead Seton Hall to an 82-77 victory over DePaul on Sunday as the Pirates snapped a four-game losing streak.

Rodriguez made 12 of 21 shots including four 3-pointers. Angel Delgado added 16 points and 19 rebounds for his 18th double-double this season. Myles Powell added 12 points and Khadeen Carrington 11 for the Pirates (18-9, 7-7 Big East), who won the boards 48-31.

Tied early in the second half, Seton Hall built a nine-point lead with nine minutes to go and kept the lead though a difficult 3-pointer by Max Strus cut it to 79-77 with 28 seconds left. But after Eli Cain missed on a drive to the rim, Rodriguez grabbed the defensive rebound, was fouled, and made the clinching free throws with 8.6 seconds left.

Marin Maric led DePaul (10-16, 3-11) with 23 points.
