Jeff Robinson had 16 points and nine rebounds to lead Seton Hall, which lost leading scorer Jeremy Hazell to a hand injury in the first half, to a 59-50 victory over St. John's on Wednesday night.

Hazell, the Big East's second-leading scorer at 22.4 points per game, suffered a deep cut between fingers on his shooting hand 12 minutes into the game and never returned. He scored the first eight points of the game for Seton Hall (15-9, 6-7) and finished with 10.

Robinson picked up for him. The 6-foot-6 junior came into the game 0 for 7 from 3-point range and hadn't even attempted one since Jan. 21. He made 2 of 3 and finished one point off his season high.

Sean Evans had 14 points for the Red Storm (14-11, 4-9), who like Seton Hall came in on a two-game winning streak.


St. John's, which missed its first 11 3-point attempts, finished with a season-low point total.
