NEWARK, N.J.(AP) -- Jeremy Hazell rebounded from one of his worst games of the season to score 35 points to lead Seton Hall to a 90-87 victory over Notre Dame on Thursday, snapping the Pirates' three-game losing streak.

Hazell hit 12 of 16 shots from the field and was clutch down the stretch, hitting a 3-pointer with 1:21 to go and a bank shot with 1:08 left as Seton Hall (13-9, 4-7 Big East) ended a six-game losing streak against Notre Dame (17-8, 6-6).

The Irish played most of the final 8:42 without All-America Luke Harangody. The nation's No. 3 scorer (24.5 points) injured his left knee coming down on a rebound attempt.

Still, Notre Dame had two chances to tie the game in the closing seconds. Tim Abromaitis missed a 3-pointer with about 4 seconds to play and Carleton Scott missed another 3 at the buzzer.
